A vigil was held Friday night in Lincoln to remember disabled people killed by domestic violence.
After the names were read, a moment of silence was held to remember those lives lost. And instead of candles, the group used glow sticks.
In the last 5 years, more than 30 disabled people in the U.S. have been killed by a family member or caregiver.
"The idea that a person with a disability is going to be hurt because they have a disability is totally reprehensible," Kathy Hoell with the Nebraska Statewide Independent Living Council said.
The vigil is a nationwide event that began last year in response to the murder of an autistic man from California.
