Biden marks Transgender Day of Remembrance
President-elect Joe Biden marked Transgender Day of Remembrance on Friday, promising to fight for the trans community as it faces growing violence.
“On Transgender Day of Remembrance, we honor their lives — and recommit to the work that remains to ensure that every transgender and gender-nonconforming person in America has the opportunity to live authentically, earn a living wage, and be treated with dignity and respect in their communities and workplaces,” Biden said in a statement.
At least 37 transgender and gender-nonconforming individuals have been killed in the U.S. this year. The Human Rights Campaign, an LGBTQ advocacy organization, announced in October that 2020 marked the deadliest year for the community since it began recording the fatalities in 2013.
