Trans Awareness Week

Each November 13 through 19 is Trans Awareness Week, where people and organizations around the United States take action to help raise the visibility of transgender people and address issues members of the community face. The week culminates on Nov. 20 with the Transgender Day of Remembrance, an annual observance that honors the memory of transgender people whose lives were lost in acts of anti-transgender violence that year.
