29th Annual Noche de Memorias
December 1, 2022 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
The Wall Las Memorias invites you to the 29th Annual Noche de la Memorias event on World AIDS Day on Thursday, December 1st at The Wall Las Memorias AIDS Monument in Lincoln Park. The event is free and open to the public.
The Wall Las Memorias AIDS Monument was built to remember those victims who have passed away from this horrible disease. The monument was designed as a Quetzalcoatl serpent, an Aztec symbol for rebirth. The monument consists of eight wall panels: six murals depicting life with AIDS in the Latino community and two granite panels that contain the names of over 4,000 people.
Fox 11 News anchor Laura Diaz will MC the event, and the program will include an opening prayer from faith leaders, performances, testimonials from family members who have lost a loved one to HIV/AIDS, and a candlelight vigil.
Online registration is available via Eventbrite.
