#March4TransEquality on Washington, D.C. to be held on September 28, 2019 Added to the Library of Congress
By: Trans March on DC
The Library of Congress preserves important cultural artifacts and provides enduring access to them. The Library's traditional functions, acquiring, cataloging, preserving and serving collection materials of historical importance to foster education and scholarship, extend to digital materials, including websites. Our web archives are important because they contribute to the historical record, capturing information that could otherwise be lost. With the growing role of the web as an influential medium, records of historic events could be considered incomplete without materials that were "born digital" and never printed on paper.
The National Trans Visibility March is of critical importance at this time. With the Equality Act of 2019 being threatened by the Senate and the trans military ban implementation, there is a need to mobilize America to recognize and fight for the rights of TGNC/NB people. Although the current administration has intentionally rolled back efforts to prevent inclusion of transgender communities in the US census, individuals from the TGNC/NB communities have mobilized and issued a call to action to dismantle the social structures that have oppressed and disenfranchised the TGNC/NB community.
The #March4TransEquality weekend will begin Friday night September 27, 2019, with the Torch Award Ceremony honoring TGNC/NB leaders for their more than 15 years of national service. The ceremony will take place at the Crystal Gateway Marriott in Arlington, VA.
Registration for the National Trans Visibility March is suggested, but not required. Donations from all in any amount are welcome. Donations of at least $25 will receive a National Trans Visibility March t-shirt and other items. The Torch Awards are a separate, ticketed event. For more information, register for the NTVM or purchase tickets to The Torch Awards please go to transmarchondc.org. Make your pledge today with the National Transgender Community and become a partner in the first visible #March4TransEquality historic movement to come to our nation's capital!
