Join us at EVERYBODY for a community-organized memorial service to process the traumas of last June 12 and all the days, violences, and lives lost between then and now. When the world wants us to forget, we will remember! Organized by Equality4All.
Through remembering, we will heal together as a stronger force against the homophobia, transphobia, racism, Islamophobia, sexism, and anti-immigrant hatred that seek to set us against each other.
The program will feature words by community leaders and activists (TBA), a guided mourning ceremony, and a reading of the names.
At 8:15, we will invite you to participate in a 'soundbath,' a communal healing session in a closed room that incorporates the vibrations of gongs and other instruments. Donations welcome - proceeds to benefit our partner, the Latino Equality Alliance.
