On March 12th, 2022, SAAPRI co-sponsored an event along with other Asian American community-based organizations to commemorate the anniversary of the Atlanta spa shootings that took place on March 16, 2021. Many gathered at Horner Park to remember the victims, honor their memories, and come together as a community.
The program for the remembrance event was led by Asian American youth affiliated with HANA Center, KAN-WIN, and Asian Americans Advancing Justice-Chicago. The program included a youth spoken word performance, a Collective Youth Statement, spiritual offerings, and a musical performance.
Thank you to all those who attended our event!
