"The Transgender Day of Remembrance serves several purposes. It raises public awareness of hate crimes against transgender people, an action that current media doesn’t perform. Day of Remembrance publicly mourns and honors the lives of our brothers and sisters who might otherwise be forgotten. Through the vigil, we express love and respect for our people in the face of national indifference and hatred. Day of Remembrance reminds non-transgender people that we are their sons, daughters, parents, friends and lovers. Day of Remembrance gives our allies a chance to step forward with us and stand in vigil, memorializing those of us who’ve died by anti-transgender violence."

"The Metropolitan Police Department’s Annual Report, dated 7/13/2014, shows that hate crimes decreased 14% year to date since the time last year. However, hate crimes based on gender identity / expression increased 13%. Over 20% of the hate crimes committed in Washington, DC during this period showed a bias on the basis of gender identity/expression."
