Bar Safety Hell’s Kitchen Canvassing 12/16
December 16 @ 4:00 pm – 8:00 pm
AVP is monitoring reports of LGBTQ people being drugged or robbed while out at bars or clubs. Two men, Julio Ramirez and John Umberger, died suspiciously after leaving bars in the Hell’s Kitchen area, and media reports indicate that their toxicology screenings indicated drugging. Both men had thousands of dollars stolen out of their phones.
We want to get the word out to community about how they can stay safe, and build awareness around potential threats to those out in the nightlife scene.
Join AVP in its bar safety canvassing efforts in Hell’s Kitchen on Friday, December 8th from 4:00 pm until 8:00 pm.
