Day of Mourning 2014: Remembering People with Disabilities Murdered by Caregivers

On March 1, a worldwide day of mourning will be held for people with disabilities murdered by caregivers. There will be both public vigils (in various cities) and an online vigil beginning at 3:00 PM EST.

Please consider attending tomorrow’s vigils, online or in person. Let’s not forget Alex Spourdalakis, Vincent Phan, Tamiyah Audain, Matthew Hafer…and that is a short list of this year’s causalities alone.

Life is sacred, and the loss of these people’s lives needs to be remembered. Let them not go, unforgotten, into that good night.
