San Jose Families Rally Together for #FreedomNow

San Jose families who lost loved ones to police violence, rallied together in solidarity with The Movement for Black Lives. Laurie Valdez, whose partner was killed by San Jose State Police has been a leader in reaching out to other families who have experienced the same unspeakable loss, so that they know that they do not walk the long road to justice alone.
