We, the undersigned students, faculty, staff, and alumni of Johns Hopkins, stand in support of transgender and gender non-conforming people everywhere. We come together in honor of Transgender Day of Remembrance and Resilience. We support everyone’s right to express their genders, receive respectful health care, and live free of gendered violence. We are committed to improving Johns Hopkins for people of all genders.
