Here are some photos of the vigil that was held for the I Am Joaquin Luna vigil in Texas under the leadership of Tania Chavez. Joaquin was a DREAMer who committed suicide because he felt he had no other option and on Monday, April 2, 2012, the Minority Affairs Council hosted a vigil in remembrance of Joaquin Luna. While our hearts mourn with those marching for Travyon in Florida, we are reminded of Joaquin at the vigil in the southwestern part of our Country.
