Disability Day of Mourning 2021

Day of Mourning Virtual Vigil

Our virtual vigil was hosted by ASAN Director of Advocacy Zoe Gross. She delivered remarks and read her piece “Killing Words.” We also heard remarks from partners such as the Arc, the National Disability Rights Network, Alice Wong, and more. We also read the names and ages of all of the victims of filicide we have recorded and held a moment of silence in their memory. Rewatch our Virtual Vigil here.
