The Lawsuit against AA in NY has been dropped. However the Lawsuit against Santa Clarita AA is still pending and there is a court date in June 2016. Stay tuned and please write and blog away.
I sat in a courtroom all day today with Karla’s parents, Hector and Jaro, and her family and close friends listening to the beginning of her trial. I can not blog details but it was very hard to listen to the details of the coroner as he testified. I stopped breathing at one point I was so horrified, then I caught my breath and forced myself to take some deep breaths. I felt a huge wave of sadness fill me, then I looked to my right and each of the family members and friends had tears streaming down their faces. I took more deep breaths and continued listening.
When it was over I drove home on the 405 south (there was no traffic at 5pm ) and I was exhausted. I can’t imagine how they feel.
I think there are many aspects of what happened to her that will push our work, quicker and faster into the light and into the media and in effect make change.
The good news is…that the Judge felt that there was enough evidence to move forward with the trial. Thank GOD!
Well, it was a long day. Me, Jaro and Hector ( Karla’s parents) spent all day putting together the petition, a letter explaining what is going on in AA/NA and its culture and how women are being raped and murdered. We all were so tired, but this is the beginning.
Pictures of Karla, A great letter written by a fellow blogger ill be free was used with a few added touches as well as input from blogger Sally…much appreciation from you both!!!
Personal hand written letter from Karla’s mom was added and the petition as well. You can still sign it. Each week we will work on sending it out to every US Senator.
This is also for Kristine and Saundra Cass
Next we will send the petition and letter to all the Senators in the USA. Oh yea , we also sent one to Governor Jerry Brown, First Lady Michelle Obama, Joe and Jill Biden.
This is the beginning of our educating our higher folks in government. 1.2 Billion was spent in alcohol and drug education. I think we need a non profit so we can help more people harmed by AA.
