Remembering People with Disabilities Murdered by Their Caregivers
Far too often, when people with disabilities are murdered by caregivers, journalists
encourage us to feel sympathy for the murderer—because they had to live with or
care for a person with a disability. The message to the public is that our lives
—not our deaths—are the tragedy.
On March 1st, join ASAN Portland in remembering people with disabilities who lost
their lives at the hands of family members or caregivers. We will remember those
we have lost, and remind the world that their lives had value.
