Vigil in Flushing this Sunday

Stand up against hate!

Please bring signs, posters, friends and neighbors to this Sunday, March 21, 1pm, at the Queens Library on 41-17 Main Street, Flushing NY 11355.

Join our vigil to unite our community against violence, racism, and hate. This gathering will be an opportunity for members of our community to come together, express our condemnation of recent acts of bigotry, and to acknowledge those who have been targeted by anti-Asian violence. Let's end the violence and provide mutual support for one another!

Here’s a way to help out our neighbors whose small businesses have recently been devastated by a major first on 74th Street in Jackson Heights:

Chhaya and DRUM are calling upon Hate Free Zones Queens Allies to support those affected by the 74th St fire that devastated several Asian-owned small businesses in the heart of Jackson Heights. If you have received a stimulus payment recently, and are looking to redistribute it locally to neighbors in need, here's an important way. More information can be found on the online fundraising page.
