One of Dominique Lucious’ sisters called her "free" and said that she "flowed with energy" to a crowd of about 100 before stepping away from the microphone.

Over 100 Springfield community members gathered at Park Central Square Sunday, April 18 to honor the life of Dominique Lucious through a candlelight vigil.

26-year-old Lucious, who identified as a transgender woman, was killed Thursday, April 8. in Springfield.

A handful of speakers, including co-presidents of the Glo Center Aryne Say and Kyler Sherman-Wilkins, members of MO Ho Justice, a sex work advocacy program based in St. Louis, and members of Lucious’ family spoke to the crowd.

Candles and tea lights were passed around as stories about Lucious and resources provided by organizations like the Glo Center were discussed.
