					                              On Friday night, 19-year-old Jorge Steven López Mercado was found
                              dead on the streets of Puerto Rico.

                              He was decapitated.
                              He was dismembered.
                              His remains were set on fire.

                              Please join us in your local contingent of a multi-city vigil honoring
                              the memory of Steven and others like him. The vigils will be filmed
                              and edited together to lobby for full prosecution of the murder
                              suspect, who has been apprehended.

                              As a US territory, Puerto Rico is subject to the hate crimes
                              legislation just passed in Congress and signed into law by President
                              Obama. Whether this provision is applied in this case depends on
                              pressure from YOU. Univisión has taped remarks from a police
                              officer saying that because Steven was a queer sex worker, he
                              should have known that he could expect something like this.

                               THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE. SHOW UP, MAKE YOUR VOICE COUNT.


DATE – Sunday, November 22 / TIME – 5PM
