Trans Day of Remembrance
Trans Day of Remembrance will be honored Monday November 20th beginning at 6pm on the Arcata Plaza. The Eureka Sisters will perform our “TRANScending the Veil” Ritual, providing space for members of our community to recognize those they have lost and then, as a community, read the list of names from the international database. It is requested that those with mobility and accessibility needs be given priority to use the benches and nearest cement planters to sit on. Bring a blanket, warm coat, or otherwise. Candles will be provided, but those who can bring their own are encouraged to do so. The event will end with a singalong of “Go in Peace” by Sam Baker, lead by Angel Drums D’light deSoul. Printouts of the lyrics will be available.
This week of events is for two-spirit & trans, genderqueer, non-binary, etc. people and comrades to build community, solidarity, and power.
