Virtual event to address hate crimes against transgender people

The WVU community is invited to join the Center for Service and Learning today (Nov. 19) from 6-7:30 p.m. for the inaugural “Perspectives In...” event aimed to raise public awareness of hate crimes against transgender people.

The virtual event will also provide a means to publicly mourn and honor the lives of men and women who might otherwise be forgotten and to express love and respect for our community in the face of national indifference and hatred.

Rosemary Ketchum, the first openly transgender person elected to a public office in West Virginia, will serve as the speaker. Ketchum, a member of the Wheeling City Council, champions an inclusive, accessible and thriving community while combating addiction, homelessness and lack of accessible public transit.

Register for today's “Perspectives In...” event.
