MKE TDOR 2022: Our voices. Our community. Our TDOR.

Guest speaker Dee Dee Watters will focus on “This is why we’re here!”
Description: We stand and fight in the trenches because we deserve to exist! We say HER name HIS name THEIR name because we will not be erased! We honor our siblings that were taken from us far too soon and celebrate all of our existence for we will not be erased!
Everyone is welcome. Together, we build and strengthen our large community, supporting each other through loss and remembering our joy.
