The intersections of race, gender, sexuality and class impact the lives of transpeople of color in complex and unique ways. Our voices have often been ignored, appropriated, marginalized, or silenced. TPOCC seeks to break that cycle and empower our community by building a pipeline of activists and advocates to engage and connect with one another to create a holistic movement of support, resources, and education by and for transpeople of color.
Transgender Day of Remembrance '14
As we take time out to remember our fallen family members, we must keep their spirits close to our hearts as we continue our journey. Some of us may have known the ones we are remembering as a brother, a sister, or a friend. For many of us we know them by name and a memory. Recite their names today as a remembrance in honor and in love. Transgender Day of Remembrance is the time to hold ourselves accountable to make sure their names will never be forgotten. Keep quote in mind as you continue your day, "I wish you enough sun to keep your attitude bright. I wish you enough rain to appreciate the sun more. I wish you enough happiness to keep your spirit alive. I wish you enough pain that the smallest joys in life appear much bigger." -Author Unknown
