Community Meeting in Patchogue: Marcello Lucero

To speak to the Suffolk County Legislature in support of fairness for immigrants, you could attend a meeting of the legislature on Tuesday, Nov. 18th. Info is: here.

KW: This morning I attended a meeting organized with the NY State Division of Human Rights to have the community start discussing proactive responses to the hate crime in their town. Seven young men, all from the same high school, attacked a Hispanic man,  from Ecuador, and one of them stabbed him with a knife and murdered him.

I will try to post more about the meeting in the next few days. Note, there is a vigil tonight for Marcel Lucero at 7pm in Patchogue.

Commisioner Galen D. Kirkland of the NY State Division of Human Rights listened intently as community leaders and community members expressed their concerns and ideas for solutions. Some people expressed concerns with local politicians for policies that might create distrust of immigrants. There was actually a heated exchange between community members and a local politician. Also, a man expressed that young people become confused when local people and media apply the word “illegal” over and over again to people.

A man from Brentwood gave a touching speech about what it all meant to him and his family. And, this man said he would teach us a word in Spanish: “Lucero”. That is the name of the man who was killed. This man said that lucero means light, light a bright light in the sky, a star that can guide you. And, he hoped that the loss of Marcelo Lucero’s life would be a beacon and provide a path to more healing and understanding.
