Transgender Day of Remembrance 2020: US President-Elect Joe Biden Promises to Fight For Safety And Dignity of Transgender People

Washington, November 20: United States President-elect Joe Biden on Friday promised to fight for safety and dignity of transgender and gender-nonconforming people across America. On the Transgender Day 2020, Joe Biden said that once he sworn-in as the President of the US, his administration would listen to the people of the transgender community.

Biden also accused the previous Donald Trump Administration of denying justice to the people of the community. The US President-elect in a tweet said, “To transgender and gender-nonconforming people across America and around the world: from the moment I am sworn in as president, know that my administration will see you, listen to you, and fight for not only your safety but also the dignity and justice you have been denied.” Transgender Day of Remembrance 2020 Date: Know History and Significance of the Day That Remembers People Killed in Transphobic Events.
