Join Brooklyn Borough President Eric L. Adams at a vigil for the victims of Ecuador earthquake tonight at Maria Hernandez Park in Bushwick.

The candlelit vigil will be held at 7:30 p.m. to honor the lives of more than 350 people who died and thousands who were injured in the tragic 7.8-magnitude earthquake in Ecuador.

New York City and the surrounding region are home to the largest population of Ecuadorian-Americans in the United States, according to the Office of the Brooklyn Borough President, with one of the greatest concentrations residing in Bushwick.

Elected officials, clergy members, and other community leaders will join the vigil as well.
