BINGHAMTON, NY – During National Crime Victims Rights Week, an annual memorial is going from in-person to online.
Typically, the Crime Victims Assistance Center assembles a homicide memorial wall, filled with pictures to honor lives lost.
However, this year, the organization will be forced to pay homage in a different way.
Instead, C-VAC is putting together an online video with pictures of victims, which will run at 7 Thursday evening .
While watching, it’s also asking supporters to light a candle and reflect on the lives who have been taken and those still with us.
If you do participate, you’re encouraged to take a picture or video of the candle lighting, post it to social media, and tag C-VAC.
You can also view the name wall on their Facebook page.
