It’s the season of thanksgiving and we’re incredibly grateful to you, our community, and the enthusiasm you’ve shown for our work. We hope you’ll take that energy and spend some time educating yourselves about Native American Heritage Month and the unique challenges many of our indigenous friends and family members still face today. We encourage all of you to remember that most, if not all of us, are living on Native lands. But November also means that it’s Transgender Awareness Week (#TransWeek), a time for us to listen and to learn and to celebrate and uplift the lives of our transgender and non-binary community members. There are a number of Transgender Day of Remembrance events scheduled throughout the state, but on November 19, from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., the Salus Center will be hosting a service to remember the trans people whose lives were cut short last year. If you want to stay current with the latest and greatest LAHR and community news, we recommend subscribing to our mailing list at If you’re interested in volunteering your time (or your dollars), email We’ll hook you up.
