Transgender Day of Remembrance, also known as the International Transgender Day of Remembrance, is observed annually on November 20 as a day to memorialize those who have been murdered as a result of transphobia and to draw attention to the continued violence endured by the transgender community.
Once a year, we get a special opportunity to reflect on the things we are thankful for in our lives and share our gratitude with others. Volunteer Services would like to promote acts of kindness this giving season and share some of the reasons why we are grateful.
October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. I sat down to talk with Doris O’Neal, Director of YWCA’s Domestic Violence Services Program. Together we unpacked and confirmed the issues surrounding domestic violence for black women specifically and what we can do as advocates to ensure black women and girls are heard and seen.
