Sketch of Edmond Yu at a nighttime vigil looking downward with a candle in his hands.
Sketch of Edmond Yu by PARC member Heinz Klein

Edmond Yu’s life and unnecessary death was a tragedy, a tale of inadequate social supports for people with mental health difficulties and poor policing. It is also a story about PARC’s social change role helping create supportive housing for marginalized people, especially those with psychiatric diagnoses.
