11th Annual Peace Walk & Community Resource Fair on Saturday, March 23, 2019 at Fred Roberts Park in South Central Los Angeles! As they celebrate their 12thanniversary, they remember the life of Laura Sanchez, who was ruthlessly murdered on March 18, 2007 in front of her home. After more than a decade of working tirelessly in her memory, L.A.U.R.A. continues to advocate on behalf of victims of violence and community members who desire a safe and peaceful home to raise their families. L.A.U.R.A. also inspires and motivates our next generation to get involved, seek higher education, and actively improve the community while developing their emotional skills and creative talents.
