There are activists in our community who hope to bring to our attention issues they feel are significant. It is a vital part of our community if we hope to see and understand others who live in Northumberland.

Recently, one such group wants to focus our attention.  The Trans Day of Remembrance took place this Saturday at the Cobourg Police Station and Victoria Hall. It will commemorate those who have died due to violence and bigotry against trans people. It is the sixth time a local vigil has been held. Ashley Bouman, a local leader, will tell us about trans people in our community and what is being done to end this violence and hate.
