KC Mothers in Charge is hosting a candle lighting ceremony at its headquarters this afternoon at 5 p.m. at 3200 Wayne Avenue.

The ceremony is in honor of the National Day of Remembrance for Murder Victims. Congress designated this day in 2007 to remember the victims of these crimes.

There have been 111 homicides so far this year in Kansas City, Missouri.

The Kansas City chapter has been active for five years and has been holding the ceremony for about four years.

“We want people to cease homicides, to cease killing each other,” said Rosilyn Temple, the executive director of KC Mothers in Charge.

Temple said the community is invited to remember their friends and family with them. For more information, call 816-606-8118.
