Event to Honor Murder Victims; Families Asked to Testify

Organizers of an event honoring San Pedro homicide victims are asking victims’ families to share their stories.

The San Pedro Safety Collaborative, a group of law enforcement, school and community organizations, is holding a peace vigil at San Pedro High School on May 15.

Relatives who would like to include victims’ stories should contact Gabriela Medina at the YWCA, (310) 547-0831. Volunteers are also needed for the event. Call Alice Castellanos at the YWCA to lend a hand.

Editor’s note: Former More San Pedro columnist Diana Chapman is among the organizers of this event. When she stopped writing for More, Chapman moved her commentary to a blog entitled the Underdog for Kids. She has written in more detail about the peace vigil and other San Pedro current events.
