New York, New York – The Hermanas of Sigma Lambda Upsilon/Señoritas Latinas Unidas Sorority, Inc., in mutual solidarity with all members of the National Association of Latino Fraternal Organizations (NALFO), encourages the greater community at large to support the fundraising efforts of the “Jonel Gonzalez Family Fund.”
Monetary contributions to assist in supporting the Gonzalez family throughout this unexpected heart wrenching loss should be submitted via the official “Jonel Gonzalez Family Fund” website at https://www.wepay.com/donations/159168.
The awareness that has been generated by the recent events that the Gonzalez family is coping with serves as a reminder that a community in unity and solidarity has the ability to generate a greater prevailing voice than one that is made in solitude.

We commend the activism efforts of La Unidad Latina, NALFO member organizations, the greater community at large, and our Hermanas of Sigma Lambda Upsilon who are actively leading various support efforts on behalf of the Gonzalez family.
