The TDTF Discord server was well received for the Trans Day of Remembrance event, so we have decided to keep using it. It’s functional for us to talk about casework internally, and to communicate with followers who want to drop in. We will also hold special events now and again as well as private volunteer meetings.
The door is open to anyone who wants to come and hang out with us and talk about cases or trans issues related to human identification or forensic science, and we’ve already created another event. On Thursday, November 28, we will have a casual Thanksgiving drop-in for people to come and chat if they’re lonely or need to have a reprieve from difficult to deal with family events. There is a channel inside the server called “Holiday Chat” that we will keep staffed during the holiday season for anyone who needs it.
People who go unidentified have often lost contact from their family and friends, and we want to maintain a space where people can feel connected and maintain contact with others if they are finding themselves lonely. Come chat and get or give support!
