Please donate to the Luís Góngora Pat Anniversary Memorial Fund that we have created on YouCaring. Thank you.
Friday April 7th, 2017 was the One Year Anniversary of the death of Luis Góngora Pat at the hands of the SFPD. The Justice & Honor for Luis Góngora Pat Coalition is raising funds to support Luis’ family in this time of mourning and grief. Luis’ family depended on him financially. Now his brother Jose must support their parents, Luis’ family, and his own family. A one year memorial fundraiser will go a long way towards easing the financial strain on a struggling family and help them build a final resting place for Luis’ body in their hometown cemetery in Teabo (Yucatan, Mexico.)
We invite you to donate any amount that is comfortable for you. 20-30% of funds raised will be kept by Luis’ family in San Francisco to cover the cost of the one year memorial event (banner, posters, flyers, t-shirt printing, event documentation, etc.)
Who was Luis Góngora Pat?
Luis was a 45 year old indigenous Mayan Mexican, an immigrant worker and a family man who for a decade and a half supported his wife and three children in the small town of Teabo by sending remittances from his dishwasher and line cook earnings. In 2014, he and his brother Jose were illegally evicted from their home in the Mission District during the peak housing crisis of San Francisco, after which they became homeless. Extended family helped his brother get back on his feet, and the plan was to help Luis next. But his life was brutally cut short; he became a victim of police terror in the Sanctuary City of San Francisco.
