The Musical Autist acknowledges, commemorates and participates in the Disability Day of Mourning on March 1st. We encourage our readers to find a vigil near you, or participate virtually. You can find a list here at Autistic Self Advocacy Network.
Several of us will be attending the virtual vigil organized in Maryland, since our organization is based here. If you’d like to attend a vigil and have no preference on location, you are welcome to join us, from 4-5pm EST. Here is the registration link. Here is the corresponding FB event, if you’d like to connect with others in attendance.
Thank you for taking this time to honor disabled people who have been victims of filicide. May we all take the opportunity to speak their names, out loud and within our hearts.
