Unfinished Lives

Remembering LGBT Hate Crime Victims

Unfinished Lives receives endorsements from prestigious advocacy groups

Unfinished Lives is proud to receive endorsements from two prominent and respected American advocacy groups. Paul W. Dodd of the Servicemembers Legal Defense Network, and Harry Knox of the Human Rights Campaign Foundation have recognized the Unfinished Lives project for its work to reclaim the memories of anti-gay hate crime victims in the United States.

Dodd expresses the urgent need for a project like Unfinished Lives: “For their sake, for the sake of shattered families and grieving friends, and for the sake of all that is decent and moral in civil society, we can finally hear their stories, honor their lives, and take steps to stop the hate and violence.” Additionally, Knox says our effort “is the most important one of which I am aware seeking to illuminate the lives and struggles faced by gender-variant and transgender people in the United States.”

Both endorsements honor our efforts, and, in return, we work every day to remember and celebrate persons whose lives were unjustly and violently torn from us. We at the Unfinished Lives project are truly grateful for the recognition by these two organizations, and we are proud to stand with them in the effort to guarantee dignity and respect for all people.
