Event description

Gathering in remembrance of the eight lives lost just one year ago in the tragic Atlanta spa shootings. 

Red Canary Song, in collaboration with Asian American Feminist Collective and NYU’s Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality, invite our coalition of sex worker rights activists, abolitionists, labor organizers, and allies to mourn and stand strong with us.

The event is taking place in person, at Washington Square Park in NYC, and will also be live-streamed online. It will consist of speakers, music, and an art memorial, created by Asian and migrant body care workers.

If you are attending this event in Washington Square Park, we ask that you wear a mask and stay masked during the event to uphold COVID-19 safety. The vigil will take place from 11AM-1PM EST, and food and drinks will not be provided. Please take the necessary consideration for your own care. We urge people to engage with the vigil online if a 2-hour outdoor event in a park is not safe or comfortable for them. Our collective members and volunteers will be wearing Red Canary Song masks and other apparel, so they can be identified in case concerns arise during the event. This is a permitted event, so we should be able to be there without concerns.


We also ask that you be mindful of the space because this is a grief space. Vigils are sacred spaces. People handle and express grief differently, and we want to hold space for those possibilities while still having a safe event. We do not police other people’s behavior, and we ask that people who come to this space do not either, however if you cause harm to another individual or other individuals you will be asked to stop and/or leave.
