This is an opportunity for the entire community to support those who have lost their children to homicides and another effort to increase awareness that killings are ongoing.
"This killing must stop," said LaWanda Hawkins, who founded Justice for Murdered Children in San Pedro after her 19-year-old son, Reginald Reese, was shot down on a Sunday, Dec. 6 in 1995. He was killed from multiple gun shots. Los Angeles police have never found the killer(s).
The three day celebration, which will include Friday night's walk, will begin at 5 p.m. starting under the Vincent Thomas Bridge near the Los Angeles Port's new fountain, corners of Harbor Boulevard and Swinson Street. A ceremony will begin at 6 p.m. with the reading of the victim's names, guest speakers and music.
