In 2007, the U.S. Congress designated Sept. 25 as a National Day of Remembrance for Murder Victims. Advocates and community members commemorate murder victims and surviving family members. The day also honors the work of organizations that provide services, including support, advocacy and counseling for families, individuals and communities coping with homicide-related deaths.
