Gladys Ricart and Victims of Domestic Violence Memorial Walk

Adelita M. Medina, Executive Director of Alianza—the National Latino Alliance for the Elimination of Domestic Violence and Dawn Maestas, DV survivor, Alianza consultant, and Albuquerque business owner, will be two of the guest speakers at this year's Memorial Walk. They will join Josie Ashton and dozens of other marchers in New York City on September 26, 2012. Josie is the originator of the first Brides March which took place on September 26, 2001. That year, Josie, who was immensely moved by the murder and outraged at the media and community's insensitive response, walked in her own wedding gown from New York, through several states along the East Coast to her home state of Florida in an attempt to draw attention to the horrors of domestic violence.

When: Wednesday, September 26, 2012, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. (EDT)
Where: New York City
Help Remember Victims of Domestic Violence & Raise Awareness About the Horrors of Family Violence. The estimated six-mile walk begins at 9 a.m. in Washington Heights (Manhattan); travels through and stops in the South Bronx and Harlem, and ends in East Harlem about 5 p.m.
