Due to fairly large difference in organizing and political philosophy – the Vancouver Transgender Day of Remembrance is pulling out of their involvement with the trans day of remembrance at UBC – unceded and occupied coast salish territory. Lack of meaningful collaboration is not ok – especially from such a place of privilege and entitlement.
*MOST IMPORTANT = We have this on facebook:
(this event is taking place on unceded and occupied Coast Salish Territory = Tsleil-Waututh, Musqueum, and Squamish nations respectively)
