Stop the Repression! Fundraiser for Alex Sanchez

Alex Sanchez's family migrated from El Salvador in the 1970s. He was a former gang member who turned his life around becoming an internationally recognized peacemaker and co-founding Homies Unidos in Los Angeles in 1998. On June 24, 2009, Alex was arrested and named in a federal indictment based on weak evidence, charging him among a group of twenty-three others as an active gang member. He is being held without bail in spite of widespread support for his release.
