On Saturday 18 April at 11am NUJ members will join in solidarity and remembrance to mark the 1st anniversary of the killing of journalist and NUJ member Lyra McKee.

The union plans to mark the anniversary of her needless death in Northern Ireland by celebrating her life and legacy.

The union is encouraging members and friends to take part in a symbolic virtual commemoration at 11am on Saturday morning, using social media to highlight the shared values which Lyra embraced under the banner #WeStandWithLyra

The NUJ has asked media workers to share examples of Lyra's journalism, tributes, memories and pictures on Saturday morning.
