In the early morning hours of February 15, 2020, Amie was murdered by a jealous ex-boyfriend (from 8 years prior). Her killing was a senseless tragedy that robbed the world of a brilliant and talented woman who was just hitting her stride in life.
While she is now buried in her hometown of Lansdale, Pennsylvania, she left behind hundreds (if not thousands) of friends in Los Angeles where she lived for most of her adult life.
This project will create a life-size bronze memorial of Amie that will include a plaque that is dedicated to the women who have lost their lives to domestic violence. But it will also serve as a place for to gather, to find solace and also an inspiration to live our lives as fiercely as she lived hers. This permanent memorial will be installed in the world-famous in Hollywood Forever Cemetery which is in the heart of Hollywood.

We hope to raise the funds necessary to design and build the statue, secure the memorial plot, and have in installed and unveiled by May 20, 2023 (which would have been her 42nd birthday).

Who was Dr. Amie Harwick?
Amie had so many facets and talents that categorizing her would be a disservice to such an impressive woman. She was a therapist, a model, a dancer, a video and podcast personality, an author, a photographer, a collector of oddities, but most of all she was a champion of women, a beloved daughter, and a good friend to so many heart-broken people.

What is the Memorial?
The memorial will be a life-size bronze statue of Amie depicted in allegorical fashion and surrounded by symbolic elements from her life. She will stand on a large plinth along with a statue of her beloved cat Marquis. A bronze plaque will memorialize her story and offer prayers to all female victims of domestic violence.
