Ceremony @ Luis’s Altar 10-11:30am
Join us in celebrating the life of Luis Góngora Pat! We will start the day with a Mayan ceremony and commemoration of his life led by his family, at his altar @ Shotwell and 19th Streets in the Mission District.
2018 will be the most important year for the family of Luis Góngora Pat. Within weeks they will learn whether D.A. Gascón will charge the officers who killed Luis. By October 22, 2018, the civil rights trial filed by Luis’s widow, Carmen, and his children Rossana, Luis and Angel, will begin. Please gather around his family leading the charge in San Francisco to wish them good results and celebrate the Life of Luis!
