Join the action
There are several ways to take part in «Returning the Names action».
Join the event in your city or town
Find your city in the Cities 2023 section and join the action at the time specified. We are doing our best to publish the most accurate information about the date, time and venue for each city but we still advise you to subscribe to the page of your event on social media for last minute updates (if any). You can also contact the organizers directly. You will find their contacts in the same section.
Organize the event in your city or town
If your city is not on the list, you can organize a Returning the Names reading yourself. It doesn’t have to be a huge event: a few people reading out the names of victims of political persecutions at a place associated with the history of terror or resistance is exactly about Returning the Names. Go to the Become an organizer section for detailed instructions and tips on preparing names cards, filming and more.
Support the campaign by making a donation
We understand that not everyone is ready to take part in public actions and we appreciate any support you may offer. You can also make a donation to support the campaign. It is still safe to donate to Memorial even if you are in Russia. There are also options for non-Russian contributions: please go to donate.memo.ru for more details.
