Justice for Junior

June 14th, 2019 - Statement on Justice for Junior

One year after Lesandro “Junior” Guzman-Feliz was taken from us in a vicious and cowardly murder, justice has been served. Now that the gang members who took him from us have been convicted on all counts, we can continue moving forward slowly as a community.  We all will reflect on the stories we have heard about Junior and be inspired by the incredible example of strength and courage shown by his mother Leandra and his father Lisandro who have experienced unthinkable pain during this period. We thank Bronx District Attorney Darcel Clark and her team for ensuring Justice.  The Bronx is a special place because of exceptional, young people like Junior. We lost him way too early, and today, we can say that there is #JusticeforJunior.”
