Junio 2016 marcan dos años del asesinato de nuestra querida Yanira a manos del alguacil de la policía en el condado de San Mateo, el dolor y la pena no se hacen menos, pero la esperanza y el amor es aún más grande.

-La muerte de mi hermana hace dos años ha unido a una comunidad, conocí a mucha gente amable y generosa que estuvo dispuesta a dar su tiempo y energía para ayudar a mi familia. Personas que no me conocían, ni a mí ni a mi familia pero que sabían que lo que paso con mi hermana fue una tragedia y se tenía que hacer justicia.

La justicia nunca llego, pero la lucha sigue ...

Están todos invitados a celebrar la vida de mi hermana en la conmemoración de su segundo aniversario luctuoso, donde no solo celebraremos su espíritu, pero también le haremos saber al condado y al sistema corrupto que todavía estamos esperando justicia y que Yanira está en el corazón de todos y cada una de las personas que la recuerdan.

Sábado 4 de junio 2016 estaremos uniendo nuestras voces junto con la de decenas de familias que han sido también afectadas por la violencia policiaca, en un esfuerzo más para decir ya basta.

»Tendremos una ceremonia dirigida por los Danzantes Aztecas en el mural de la “Mariposa” situado en la iglesia católica “Nuestra señora del pillar” en Half Moon Bay, para después ser dirigidos en una procesión en silencio por las calles de la ciudad.

»Nos reuniremos en la Plaza “Mac Dutra” donde tendremos un altar para honrar a las familias que han sufrido y todavía sufren la pérdida de un ser amado a manos de la policía. Las familias compartirán sus historias de amor, fe y esperanza.

»Tendremos una actuación especial por parte de los jóvenes de la ciudad, el grupo “Moonraised” que son un ejemplo de lo que la dedicación y esfuerzo pueden lograr. Un grupo de jóvenes que continúan siendo motivación a través de su música para las futuras generaciones. En repetidas ocasiones criminalizamos a nuestros jóvenes y niños haciéndolos responsables de los fallos del sistema social y educativo, así como el sistema legal, es tiempo de dar la mano a nuestros jóvenes.

June 2016 marks two years since the unjustly killing of our beloved Yanira at the hands of the Police in San Mateo County, pain and sorrow still present, but hope and love is even bigger.

The death of my sister two years ago brought a community together, I met so many kind and generous people who were willing to give their time and energy to help my family. People who did not know me, or my family but they knew what happened to my sister was a tragedy and wanted to fight for what was right.

Justice never came, but the struggle continues ...

Everyone is invited to celebrate the life of my sister in commemoration of her second angelversary, in which not only will celebrate her spirit and the beauty of who she was, but we will also let the county and corrupt system know that we are still hungry for justice. Yanira is in the heart of each and every one who still remembers her.

Saturday June 4th, 2016 we will be joining our voices together with dozens of families that have also been affected by police violence in an effort to say enough is enough.

»There will be a ceremony led by Aztec dancers at The "Mariposa" Mural located at the "Our Lady of the pillar" catholic church in Half Moon Bay, Danzantes will lead us in a procession through the streets of the city.

»We will all meet at the "Mac Dutra" Plaza where we have an altar to honor the families victims of police brutality who have suffered and still suffer the loss of a loved one at the hands of the police. Families will share their stories of love, faith and hope.

»There will be a special performance, "Moonraised" is an example of what dedication and hard work can achieve. A group of young people who continue to be a motivation through their music for future generations. We repeatedly criminalize our youth by making them responsible and accountable for systemic faillures on the part of our social and educational system as well as the legal system, it is time to empower our kids to do more.
