On Sunday, July 12th, I attended a solidarity procession for Vanessa Guillen, in Laredo, TX. The LULAC Laredo Mujeres Poderosas, Harley-Davidson, and our local military veterans delivered a procession that truly commemorated and honored Vanessa’s life. The parade went through the the city, leading to the unveiling of a stunning art mural – designed by Laredo’s very own, Abel Gonzalez. Vanessa’s memory will live on through all those she impacted. Now we must ensure that her and her family receive justice, by continuing the fight for a full investigation into her death.
Pictured is Rep. Cuellar, the Laredo Mujeres Poderosas, Commissioner Precinct 4, Cindy Liendo, and City of Laredo Mayor, Pete Saenz. To watch the live stream of the procession, click here.
