year anniversary memorial

Join us on July 12th, one year after the tragic Brooklyn Tower Crane Collapse.

The memorial ceremony will take place in the 500 block of Bernard, just beside the intersection of Bernard and St. Paul.

Participants are encouraged to gather around 10am. The event will formally begin at 10:10am 

A moment of silence will be held at the time the accident occurred one year ago.

What to bring:

Bring any tokens you'd wish to drop at the temporary memorial display (flowers/pictures/vest etc.)

The community will be rebuilding and tidying up the display at this event, which will hopefully last until something more permanent takes it place.

** Please Note: Unlike the vigil, this event will not have an open mic, but if you wish to be added to a speaker list, please contact Kelly @ [email protected] **
