#HonorLivesLost Virtual Weekly Gathering

May 30 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 8:00 pm on Sunday, repeating indefinitely

A ritual of remembrance towards releasing people incarcerated in California – #FreeThemAll

 

We invite you to join #HonorLivesLost, an online weekly candle-lighting ritual to uplift incarcerated people we have lost to COVID-19 and #DeathbyIncarceration in California.

 

These gatherings will take place every Sunday at sunset via Zoom and include an #HonorLivesLost facilitator and a rotation of experienced healers. They will also be live-streamed through Facebook. Organizers and advocates across the state have created this space so we can come together to mourn the lives of people we have lost and send light and love to families grieving the unnatural deaths of their loved ones. We hope this effort will grow and support our ongoing demands to release incarcerated people who face a potential death sentence amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

As always, we invite you to make additions to our online altar: https://padlet.com/dianazuniga11/7a5qp28y2x38heoh

 

Join us every Sunday at 8:00PM via Zoom or on FB livestream, which will be shared here on the FB event page.
