PHOTO: White House Commemorates Transgender Day Of Remembrance

PHOTO: Today dozens of transgender advocates joined Office of Personnel Management director John Berry for a special observance of Transgender Day of Remembrance at the White House. “Today, we reflect on the people we’ve lost. And tomorrow, we renew our commitment to ending the discrimination and violence that keeps many more of us imprisoned with fear,” commented National Center for Transgender Equality director Mara Keisling, who praised the President’s commitment to the cause. “To have a senior Administration official leading us in commemorating transgender victims of violence is a good thing. But to have President Obama’s commitment to solving anti-transgender violence affirmed in today’s meeting is a great thing.”
