About the event

DRUM ROLL PLEASE! 

This is the moment we've all been waiting for!

As we wrap up AAPI Heritage Month, we are excited to announce that a new sign is proudly displaying "Yik Oi Huang Peace and Friendship Park" in Visitacion Valley.

JOIN US on Saturday June 15th, 2024 from 11:00am - 2:00pm to unveil the new sign and celebrate this moment! We could not have done this without your support. Thank you!

The Yik Oi Huang Peace and Friendship Park represents so much more than a mere name; it embodies our collective vision of fostering a community free from violence and grounded in healing and compassion. After all, “Yik Oi” means Abundant Love.

San Francisco will now have a visible tribute to an Asian immigrant working-class woman, whose ordinary yet extraordinary life epitomized good citizenship. This project is also about community safety, solidarity, and justice. We need this now more than ever. What if we remember we are one? What if we lead with love? Our dream is unity in diversity, and that people from different cultural and language backgrounds can pea

cefully coexist at this park without fear and hatred toward one another. This park renaming has brought us closer to achieving that dream.
