Annual Day of Memory
On Friday 14th July we hold our third annual Day of Memory (DOM).
Set up by Karma Nirvana, the DOM is to remember those that lost their lives to Honour Killings. Where some families choose to forget and feel shame, we remember and celebrate victim’s lives.
The lead event will be held at The Civic Hall, Leeds, in association with Leeds City Council. Speakers will include Karma Nirvana founder, author and activist Jasvinder Sanghera CBE and several survivors who will be sharing their personal stories of Honour Abuse in Britain. Additional guest speakers to be announced in due course.
We’d love you to join us at The Civic Hall for this event. Spaces will be limited so please email [email protected] with your attendance request as soon as possible. Tickets will be issued on a first come first served basis.
