Day of Remembrance for Murder Victims
If you need special assistance due to age, health, a disability or other reasons please let us know what we can do to accommodate them.
In solidarity with the National Day of Remembrance, held in September, the Delaware Victims’ Rights Task Force holds a memorial event in Wilmington, DE to honor the memory of murder victims. The event is to honor their memory and recognize the impact homicide has on surviving family members, loved ones, and our communities.
The event includes an opportunity for survivors to memorialize their loved one. We invite family and loved ones to be a part of this event by decorating memorial bags, posting writings and artwork on the memorial wall, and adding a photo to the memorial video played at the event. Bags and wall space are available the night of the event.
If you would like to send us a photo for the video presentation or the Memorial Wall you can send it to DelVRTF@gmail.com or mail:
