An evening to remember and honor the lives lost to COVID-19. As the death toll approaches 100,000 in the US, and social distancing restrictions are lifted in a patchwork fashion nationwide, we will safely gather to grieve and remember those lost.
Gather at the Lake Merritt Amphitheater on Saturday, June 6th, at 8pm for a candlelight vigil. We will remember individuals and groups of people who have passed, due to both action and inaction. Bring your memories, your joy, and your pain. Bring candles, flowers, and pictures, or anything else to hold or add to a community altar. Together we will honor our people while wearing masks and maintaining physical distance, because Solidarity is Safety.
Artists with the SF Projection Dept. will honor victims lost to the virus by projecting outdoor #COVIDmemorial messages and photos shared by loved ones.
