Disability Day of Mourning

Disability Day of Mourning

On 1st March, the Disability Day of Mourning brings a solemn reminder to communities worldwide. It’s a day to remember those with disabilities who’ve been killed by family members or carers, a tragic reality known as “filicide.” Cities around the globe host vigils, where people gather to honour lost lives. It’s a moment that unites people in grief and reflection, shedding light on a heartbreaking issue that’s often overlooked.

Recognising the importance of this day is crucial. It goes beyond mourning; it’s about understanding the deeper struggles faced by people with disabilities. It’s a call for action towards greater inclusion and protection within our societies – challenging us to create a world where diversity is not just celebrated but genuinely safeguarded. A powerful reminder to stand against violence and neglect in all its forms. Because every life matters. End of.
