Red Canary Song invites community members and allies to a vigil honoring the eight lives lost in the Atlanta spa shootings on March 16, 2021.
Pay your tribute to an altar dedicated to the victims; bring flowers, candles, and your loved ones. Build a moment of remembrance and solidarity by writing a message to hang by the altar. Let us gather to mourn and stand strong with one another. Together, we will reorient ourselves, overcome fear with love, and imagine beyond policing.
In light of the increased visibility of racist attacks against our Asian communities, we recognize that there is not enough space where first-generation, working-class migrants can name and process this violence. It is even more difficult for massage/sex workers who survive this kind of violence on a day-to-day basis. Therefore, this event is led by and catered to the safety needs and cultural understanding of monolingual Flushing residents and Asian migrant massage and sex workers.
Thank you to @nonviolentpeaceforce @apichachc @kqtxnyc @flushing_town_hall @flushingworkers @AAFC.NYC and all of our other collaborators and community members for helping us put this together
