·1 min read

Feb. 25—Disability rights advocates in the Washougal area will be holding a virtual vigil at 3 p.m. Monday as part of a nationwide day of mourning to honor the lives of disabled people killed by their families and caretakers.

The event is open to the public and will be streamed via Facebook Live. More information is available online at https://fb.me/e/3q7elO0KF.

The Autistic Self Advocacy Network held the first day of mourning in 2012 as a response to the murder of George Hodgins, a 22-year-old autistic man from California, by his mother. ASAN has continued to organize the event each year, partnering with other disability rights groups.
