Day of Remembrance for Murder Victims
In 2007, Congress designated Sept. 25 as the National Day of Remembrance for Murder Victims. Robert and Charlotte Hullinger, of Cincinnati, formed Parents of Murdered Children following the 1978 murder of their 19-year-old daughter, Lisa, while she was studying in Germany. The annual day of observance is on the date Lisa was murdered. The annual National Day of Remembrance for Murder Victims gives us all the opportunity to remember those lost to homicide, and honor their memories. The purpose of this event is to focus on the impact of murder on families, and communities, and ways to support and serve survivors.
Victim Support Services will be holding an event in recognition of National Day of Remembrance for Murder Victims. This is a time for survivors of homicide to gather, remember and share their loved ones, and to connect with one another. We hope you will join us!
