HOUSTON – Family and supporters of Vanessa Guillen are hosting a week of events in her honor, her sister Mayra Guillen announced on social media.
The month of April marks one year from her disappearance.
“We must take this time to remember and reflect, to stand up for change, and motivate ourselves to do better,” the organizers said.
Organizers have planned a range of events, which will be held in-person or virtually via Facebook or Instagram, including the introduction of new state and federal legislation, a virtual 5K run, and a candlelight vigil at the Vanessa Guillen mural in Washington D.C.
They also encourage others across the country to organize local vigils at her murals on Thursday.
