Transgender Day of Remembrance is an annual observance on November 20 that honors the memory of those whose lives were lost in acts of anti-transgender violence. Planned Parenthood Great Plains is proud to provide transgender communities in Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Arkansas with expert and affirming health care services.
"The Transgender Day of Remembrance seeks to highlight the losses we face due to anti-transgender bigotry and violence. I am no stranger to the need to fight for our rights, and the right to simply exist is first and foremost. With so many seeking to erase transgender people -- sometimes in the most brutal ways possible -- it is vitally important that those we lose are remembered, and that we continue to fight for justice."
- Transgender Day of Remembrance founder Gwendolyn Ann Smith
As a trusted health care provider to hundreds of transgender individuals across our affiliate, we are vested in the safety of our transgender patients inside and outside of our health centers. We see all of our patients as whole individuals and know that anti-transgender violence is a root cause of poor health outcomes.
At PPGP, transgender individuals are safe and we will continue to listen to our patients to make improvements to the way we bring comprehensive health care to the transgender community. At PPGP, we see you and we’re so honored you trust us with your care.
Take time today to remember those we have lost too soon and make a commitment to fight alongside Planned Parenthood and the transgender community for protections and justice. And remember that PPGP health centers in all four of our states are ready to help you wherever you are in your transition, no matter what.
