Save the Date: Remembrance Day – September 18th, 2017

Come join us for our 15th Annual California Memorial Project Remembrance Day!  Ceremonies will be held around the State of California on Monday, September 18th, 2017, to honor and acknowledge individuals with mental health and developmental disabilities who died at State Hospitals and were buried without recognition.  Ceremony sites will be announced soon.


On this day at 1:55 PM, we will have a statewide moment of silence to honor our peers who died without recognition or respect at State Hospitals and Developmental Centers. By giving respect to our peers,  we honor all of us.

All are welcome! If you have any questions or want to help organize an event, please contact:
