Please join Louisiana Trans Advocates and PFLAG Baton Rouge for our commemoration of the 16th annual Transgender Day of Remembrance.
Unquestionably, the most solemn day for transgender people in the U.S. is the Transgender Day of Remembrance which is commemorated every November, throughout the United States and worldwide. On this day, we memorialize the many transgender people who have lost their lives to hate-based violence. It has been estimated that one trans person per month on average is killed in the United States in a hate crime murder just for being transgender.
If you have any questions or are interested in being involved in the event don’t hesitate to email email@example.com for more information.
Also, if you would like information about memorials being held in other parts of the state during the week, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Join the USDA for a day-long discussion on the needs of the LGBT community in rural America and the policy changes under the Obama administration that have helped to address some of the vulnerabilities of rural LGBT people and families.
Event is free and open to the public. Lunch will be served.

Bring your family, bring your friends, bring anyone you know, and take action for equality with others in your community!
Together with Capital City Alliance, Baton Rouge Pride Fest, MCC Baton Rouge, PFLAG Baton Rouge and Spectrum, Equality Louisiana (EQLA), the statewide coalition of LGBT and allied advocacy groups, will host a free workshop open to everyone in the Greater Baton Rouge area.
**The event will take place in the large meeting room on the second floor for the Barnes and Noble at LSU.
EQLA’s Community Connects are a great opportunity to learn about state-level LGBT-related legislation coming up in the 2015 legislative session that will begin April 13. We will discuss the big issues faced by our community and the different ways we can all advocate for LGBT people, no matter how hectic our schedules are.
We want everyone to leave ready to make your voice heard.
EQLA will be traveling all over the state in the coming weeks, so look for a Community Connect event near you if you are not in the Baton Rouge area.
