Antwanisha's Family on Maury Povich Show

Today is Anwanisha Morgan's birthday. She would have been 18.

Antwanisha - an amazing young woman - was killed on the intersection of Third and Quesada on March 16th, and the community has rallied around the family members as they struggle with staggering loss and with finding a path toward positive change so that the killings will stop.

Today, 150 friends surrounded Malika, Antwanisha's mother, at the cemetary where Antwanisha rests. They stayed for hours, helping her through a hard day and creating a moving example of community strength.

Family members of Antwanisha invite each of us to watch their appearance on the Maury Povich Show, Tuesday at 10:00 on KTVU when they will speak about their experience.

For those who may not have seen it, the community consensus plan that responds to Antwanisha's death is reposted below in its entirety.
