Each year, local city and county councils issue Proclamations that commemorate the Holocaust and honor Holocaust victims. In very moving ceremonies, a member of the Council reads a Proclamation, followed by a candle lighting ceremony. It is crucial for everyone to support these proclamations by attending the council meetings at which the proclamation is read.
