ACI Remembers Disabled Victims Murdered by Family Memebers or Caretakers

On March 1st 2017, the disability community and our allies gathered around the world for annual Day of Mourning. For the past 3 years ACI organized and hosted a vigil to mourn and to express our outrage. This year more than 100 people were added to the already too long list of victims murdered by a family member or care giver. We decry these incidents as unacceptable. We demand justice. And we speak for those who are no longer alive to speak for themselves. We will host this vigil every year until it is no longer needed. Thank you to all who attended this poignant evening.
