Supporters of delivery and cab drivers held a memorial Tuesday afternoon for workers who have lost their lives.

The murder of Queens delivery worker Zhiwen Yan left the city in shock and highlighted just how dangerous the industry can be for its primarily immigrant worker base. In an effort to both remember workers like Yan while also calling for further safety protocols to be implemented by employers, a memorial was held to honor their memories.

Organized by Justice for App Workers–a coalition representing 100,000 rideshare drivers and delivery workers–organizers were joined in Inwood Hill Park by family members of those who have perished.
