At this month’s Reimagine Candlelight Vigil, our special guest is award-winning poet Victoria Chang. Let’s honor our loved ones and celebrate the transformation of loss into creativity.

Reimagine has been hosting candlelight vigils throughout the pandemic in order to break down taboos and hold space for all that we’ve lost. At this special gathering, poet and writer Victoria Chang will read her work, revisit themes explored in Reimagine’s Asian American Table Talk series, and discuss the power of writing to discover meaning amidst grief and trauma.
