On February 26, 2015, Amilcar was shot six times to the back by SFPD.
As investigations continue, and demands for intervention by the Federal Justice Department escalate, we remember this young immigrant and his family in Guatemala — in poetry, prayer, dance, a candle-lit vigil and march, and a clear demand for justice and an end to police violence.
Join us Friday, February 26, 2016 at 5pm at Folsom St. between 25th and 24th St.
Among those joining us: the Danzantes Xitlali and other Bay Area faith leaders, Supervisors David Campos and Malia Cohen, Mission youth leaders, Labor leaders, leaders from the Mario Woods and Alex Nieto Coalitions, and many others.
We’ll begin with a vigil at the site of Amilcar’s shooting (Folsom between 24th and 25th), and then march to Mission Police Station. Afterwards, a free community dinner at St. John’s at 15th and Julian (between Valencia and Mission).
