This annual event is held in memory of homicide victims and provides an opportunity for survivors to celebrate the lives of their loved ones.

Safer and stronger communities become reality through persistence, vigilance, commitment, unity and with stronger laws regarding gun related crimes being adopted and enforced.
Confirmed guest include: U.S. District Attorney Michael Dunavant, Shelby County Attorney General Amy Weirich, Director Michael Rallings, Chief Deputy Floyd Bonner, Councimal Edmund Ford, Jr., Commissioner Reginald Milton, Dorcus Young from Mayor Luttrell’s office, Rev. William House and Elder Claude Hinds.
The entire community is invited and encouraged to be a part of remembering our deceased loved ones and efforts to “save our children to save our future.” For additional information, contact Stevie Moore at 901.502.7387 or Crime Victims Center at 901.222.3969.
