Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti has announced plans for “Strength and Love, the City of Angels’ COVID-19 Memorial,” a three-day virtual event from Thursday, Nov. 18, through Saturday, Nov. 20, as well as an in-person public memorial at the Griffith Observatory.
The initiative will honor first responders, essential workers, small businesses owners, community organizations, caregivers, neighbors and families, and remember those lost to the pandemic. It will also support efforts to give back to communities and work together to build a stronger and more resilient city, Garcetti said.
The public can visit a memorial installation at the Griffith Observatory that will be open from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily from Nov. 18-20. White flags commemorating victims of the pandemic will be placed on the front lawn at the observatory, 2800 E. Observatory Road.
Each evening, several iconic L.A. buildings will be lit up in blue, including Los Angeles City Hall, SoFi Stadium and the Grand Park Fountain.
Members of the public are also encouraged to download free “Strength and Love” posters and show support by displaying them in windows. They can share how they plan to participate in the memorial on social media and post about who they are honoring and remembering using the tag #StrengthandLoveLA.
