Suffolk Green Party Endorses Transgender Day of Remembrance 2014

Green Party of SuffolkThe Green Party of Suffolk continues to support Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDOR).   TDOR is a worldwide event held every November to raise awareness about discrimination, violence, and murder directed at transgender (living as or expressing a gender other than the one expected at birth), intersex (biologically in between or outside male and female), and gender-nonconforming (acting in any way contrary to gender stereotypes) people.

The Green Party believes in supporting the safety, dignity, and equality of all people.  Our Diversity Platform includes LGBTI (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex) individuals.  We are opposed to discrimination and violence, including any directed against a person’s expressed or perceived gender or sexuality.  In keeping with our Pillars of social/economic justice, grassroots democracy, ecological wisdom, and peace/nonviolence, The Green Party of Suffolk supports Transgender Day of Remembrance, both as an event and in its local observances.  For general information about Transgender Day of Remembrance, visit tdor.info.  Upcoming TDOR events in Suffolk County include:
