Elected officials are holding a candlelight vigil for Tessa Majors, the Barnard student who was killed on Wednesday, inside Morningside Park. The vigil starts at 4:30 p.m. As Council Member Mark Levine wrote:
“Tess, as she was known to her friends and family, was by all accounts an extraordinary young woman, who was interested in journalism, played in a rock band, and undoubtedly had a life of enormous potential ahead of her. Her loss is painful beyond words.
This Sunday you are invited to join me and other Northern Manhattan elected officials along with community leaders, Morningside Heights residents, and students for a candlelight vigil to honor Tessa’s memory. The event will start at 4:30pm in Morningside Park on the bottom landing of the 116th entrance.”
