    Michelle Alyssa Go Remembered During Candlelight Vigil

    East Bay native Michelle Alyssa Go (1981–2022) was killed in New York City on January 15 when she was pushed in front of an oncoming subway train at the Times Square Station. A candlelight vigil in her memory, organized by the organization Asians Fighting Injustice, was held in San Francisco on January 18 at Portsmouth Square.

    In addition to friends, colleagues, and the family of Go, numerous prominent members of the Asian American community attended the vigil, including Congresswoman Grace Meng, City Attorney David Chiu, former U.S. Ambassador Curtis S. Chin, and anti-violence advocate Mary Tung.

    Other vigils were held in cities such as Fremont and NYC at Times Square. All called for an end to AAPI hate, which has been on the rise nationally. Go’s loss has been deeply felt, in part due to her lifelong dedication to volunteerism, such as helping low-income individuals.
