Rep. Sandra Hollins, D-Salt Lake City, displays a photograph at the Say Their Names Memorial in Salt Lake City on Saturday as part of a nationwide grassroots initiative to honor Black lives lost to injustice. The memorial is at the corner of 500 West and 400 North and available for public viewing through Oct. 26. “Our hope is that when people experience the memorial and look into the eyes of those no longer with us, they have a chance to reflect,” said Joy Proctor, founder of the Say Their Names Memorial. “We want this to spur dialogue and even action across the nation in the communities where these memorials have been displayed.”
