Frequently Asked Questions
1. WHY IS THERE A NEED TO HAVE A SANTOS RODRIGUEZ MEMORIAL IN DALLAS?
We believe that just like the Holocaust and Pearl Harbor, the tragedy of Santos Rodriguez' murder is still felt within the community. Many Dallas residence feel that justice was never served in the case, and a memorial would help bring closure to the community.

Because for 45 years, promises have been made to Santos' mother, Bessie Rodriguez, of monuments to memorialize Santos, yet nothing has come fruition.

The Dallas Peace and Justice Center and the SMU Embrey Human Rights Program.
