How long must we wait for justice?
UPDATE: 11:00a EST on 2/15/11 -- In response to yesterday's guilty verdicy, we're hosting press conferences in Tucson, AZ & Chicago, IL today.
Since Brisenia was murdered.
Nine-year-old Brisenia Flores was murdered in her home in Arivaca, Arizona in May 2009. She pleaded, "Please don't shoot me," right before she was shot -- point blank, in the face -- by a member of the Minutemen American Defense Corps (MAD).
Brisenia's story has been largely ignored in the mainstream media, but her life has galvanized people around the country to speak out against hate violence towards Latinos. We at Presente designed a poster to honor Brisenia's memory, and to send a statement that we want justice.
Help us share this her story by downloading it, spreading her image far and wide, and taking a stand against hate crimes toward Latinos.
