B'tzelem Elohim. We are all made in the image of God. May we walk through the world treating every human being with this fundamental truth.


November 20th is Transgender Day of Remembrance--an international day to reflect on the lives lost to anti-transgender hate and violence. It is so important, and urgent, to mark this day on the calendar, and that these lives are acknowledged. Simultaneously, it is tragic and disturbing that we even need such a day on the calendar.


How can it be that human beings are capable of this kind of violence and brutality? Why do we desecrate the image of God by harming our brothers and sisters? Aleinu. It is upon us to transform the world that is--a world where this kind of hate and violence exists--into the world that ought to be. And until that day comes, we observe days of remembrance and stand in allyship.

Show your support for one of the most marginalized and at risk populations in our community. Stonewall Alliance Center and Faith Lutheran Church invite everyone to two separate events: a community altar building & visiting and a candlelight vigil with a reading of names of Trans people who died this past year from acts of violence and hate.
