Argonne and Spectrum Remember Lives Lost in the LGBTQI+ Community during Transgender day of Remembrance

We encourage everyone to observe this remembrance by taking a moment of silence on November 20 to honor all those transgender people whose lives were lost to anti-transgender violence this year, and by learning about the violence and issues that affect the transgender community and how to be a good ally.
