In Loving Memory of Marcelina (Marcy) Briones (1992-2016)
Marcy was a beautiful young mother, a precious daughter and a dear friend to many. Marcy was also a victim of Domestic Violence whose life ended tragically on January 19, 2016. Marcy had been struggling to get out of an abusive relationship. Her ex-boyfriend was awaiting trial for assaulting her the previous October and despite a no contact order, he entered her home on Sunday January 17th and beat the mother of his two young children with an aluminum baseball bat. Marcy's injuries were severe and she died two days later. It is time to stand up and say #NoMore! We must all join together to help others caught in the cycle of violence. Please honor Marcy's memory and give today in support of Awareness, Prevention and Advocacy!
