GRIOT Supports QEJ Vigil for Elder Yvonne McNeal
In response to this violence, QEJ is partnering with New Providence to hold a vigil and silent march in Yvonne’s honor outside of the shelter. The vigil will be on Friday, November 18 from 5 – 7 pm at New Providence Women’s Shelter, 225 East 45th Street.
Thanks for your support especially in these times of violence. QEJ is very shocked and saddened by this brutal act, we are not silenced–we will continue to organize around low-income, working class queer issues in New York, and will not be stopped by police brutality. Your love is what inspires us; your support is what empowers us.
