Vigilia Virtual, José Antonio Presente!
Meeting ID: 885 6484 3312
On behalf of José Antonio Elena Rodríguez’s mom, Araceli Rodríguez, and grandma, Taide Elena, everyone who has stood with them for the past 8 years of their pursuit for accountability and justice is invited to a virtual vigil tomorrow, December 10th at 8pm Eastern / 5pm Pacific. As we continue to accompany Araceli and Taide, we are reminded that peace and healing are not possible without justice, and that justice is impossible without accountability. We will continue to demand justice for José Antonio and the other 5 individuals murdered in Mexico by CBP agents in the United States; for the more than 100 people that have been murdered by CBP; for the thousands that have been disappeared by CBP policies and strategies; and for everyone else that is currently deprived of their liberty.
2pm-3:30pm Eastern / 1pm-2:30pm Central / 12pm-1:30pm Mountain / 11am-12:30pm Pacific
