11/20 Trangender Day of Remembrance Candlelight Vigil

From an email:

International Transgender Day of Remembrance Candlelight Vigil:
Monday, Nov. 20th @ 7PM at the South 40 Clocktower on the Wash U campus.

Come mourn the deaths of people murdered due to anti-transgender violence in this past year. Hear the stories of people who were killed and help raise awareness about violence against those with differing gender identities and expressions. Some local St. Louis religious leaders will be present to speak, but the event is not inherently religious. Following the meeting at the clocktower, we will then proceed into Friedman Lounge in Wohl Center where our guests will speak. Open to all.

If you have questions, or need more information, email pridewu@gmail.com. To learn more about who is being remembered this year see http://www.rememberingourdead.org/day/who.html

Driving directions to the clocktower:
To reach the clocktower, turn onto Shepley Drive from Big Bend. This is the entrance to the South 40 on the western side. A parking garage is hidden behind the dorms on the left. There is also metered parking across the street from the garage on the right. From there, walk east along Shepley Drive until you see the small, green clocktower near Ursa's Cafe.

Wash U's campus is also accessible by MetroLink from the Forsyth Station stop.
