On March 23, Oregon Governor Kate Brown issued an executive order calling for Oregonians to stay home, closing specific retail businesses, and requiring social distancing in most cases, immediately and until further notice. Social gatherings with people from outside of your household are not allowed until further notice.

United Front's Trans Justice Campaign will be hosting an event to observe the Trans Day of Remembrance, cosponsored by organizers from Trans*Ponder, UO LGBT Education & Support Services, and Spectrum.
There will be food, an altar, and space to grieve and come together. United Front is seeking food donations. There will be ASL interpreters and will reach out for Spanish interpreters (please contact them if you want to help). They will either provide childcare or create a space within the event that is child centered. They are also reaching out to have crisis counselors available. The space is wheelchair accessible. Bathrooms will be made Gender Neutral. They ask that people refrain from wearing perfumes and colognes to allow people with medical sensitivities to attend.
We are remembering those we have lost to anti-trans violence and prejudice from November 20th, 2017 to November 19th, 2018. Anti-trans violence is an ongoing and increasing problem here and around the world. This is an important time to come together as a community. We will particularly be centering amab (assigned male at birth) trans people of color and two spirit people, as they are violently targeted disproportionately. We also acknowledge that we are on Kalapuya land. It is white European colonization that brought transphobia to this land, and the gender and sexual oppression that indigenous people now face is a result of colonization. Decolonization is essential in fighting transphobic violence. Our fight for justice and freedom can never be complete without intersectionality and decolonization.
