Day Of Mourning 2015: Remembering People With Disabilities Murdered By Caregivers, Atlanta/Decatur Location

The content on this page is provided by a Time Out partner.

In the past five years, over seventy people with disabilities have been murdered by their parents. For the last four years, ASAN, ADAPT, Not Dead Yet, the National Council on Independent Living, the Disability Rights Education & Defense Fund, and other disability rights organizations have come together at local vigils across the country to mourn those losses, bring awareness to these tragedies, and demand justice and equal protection under the law for all people with disabilities. For a full list of other vigil sites: http://autisticadvocacy.org/2015/02/2015-day-of-mourning-vigil-sites/ ---- This is the Atlanta Gathering. Chairs will be provided. Map is attached of the college. Please dress warmly if the weather requires. We may move indoors if the weather is bad. If you would prefer to not hold an open-flame candle, we can arrange for electric candles. Sponsored by the Autistic Self Advocacy Network - Atlanta Chapter and Disabled Student Association - Agnes Scott (part of the The Coalition of Student Multicultural Organizations at Agnes Scott). Contact: Kit Mead, Chapter Leader of ASAN Atlanta silverbrook.aka.silva@gmail.com OR (404) 862-9125 (email preferred. I have a smart phone.)
