Dolores “Lolita” Lebrón Sotomayor was one of five siblings born in Lares, Puerto Rico.

A leader of a Puerto Rican nationalist group

"My life I give for the freedom of my country," She then unfurled her one-starred red, white and blue flag and screamed, "Viva Puerto Rico libre!" in protest of her nation's designation as a U.S. commonwealth” - #LolitaLebrón

Sean Monterrosa was on his knees outside a Walgreens when a Vallejo Police Officer fired at him 5 times through his vehicle's windshield. One of those shots hit and killed the 22-year-old, who police say they believed was armed. He wasn’t. ⁣

The officer who fired the fatal shot has been placed on routine paid administrative leave as have the witness officers. His name has not been released.⁣

ACTION YOU CAN TAKE TODAY: Send an email to the DA. Link in my bio with language from the organizers. ⁣

We want and demand: Chief Shawny Williams release the footage of the officers’ body cameras,⁣

Have an outside independent commission be formed for the investigation of the slaying of Sean Monterrosa. ⁣

The officers disciplinary records be released and made public.⁣
