Mothers of the Movement Commemorate Those Lost to ‘Violence and Indifference’

Lauryn Gutierrez

More than 750 people gathered at Freedom Plaza in Washington, D.C., for a vigil on Monday to commemorate the lives of people of color lost to ongoing violence, as part of a national summit hosted by the We Won’t Wait 2016 campaign. The campaign is a nonpartisan effort representing and advocating for the economic agenda of women of color and low-income women. “We honor the lives that we’ve lost to violence and indifference,” said Alicia Garza, co-creator of Black Lives Matter, in her remarks. “Our families are worth fighting for.”
