Today is a very solemn day in the Disability Community, a day that we have set aside to mourn our collective dead murdered at the hands of parents and other caregivers.
Today is our 4th annual Day of Mourning organized by the Autistic Self-Advocacy Network, ADAPT, Not Dead Yet, and
the National Council on Independent Living to remember people with
disabilities who have lost their lives at the hands of their family
members or caregivers. Join us to remember those we
have lost, and remind the world that their lives had value...
There are in-person vigils being held all across the U.S., in Canada, and abroad, but there is also a virtual one that you can join anywhere you are.
The chatroom opened at 3:00 pm EST, March 1, 2015. The live video broadcast began at 3:00 pm. Both will run until 7:00 pm EST or until we are done.:
