Victoria Cruz is a transgender boriqua from the island but has lived in New York City since the age of 4.  In 1997, Victoria Cruz was a victim and is a survivor of sexual assault and harassment by four female co-workers.  After refusing to remain silent and hold her attackers responsible for their violent actions, she has dedicated her life to helping other TLGBQ folks, especially TLGBQ people of color survive and thrive despite their experiences with domestic violence, police brutality, and/or sexual violence.  Victoria Cruz works for the New York Anti-Violence Project and was recognized as one of the 2012 recipients of the Justice Department’s National Crime Victim Service Award.

I/We honor her part and effort en la lucha for creating a more just and safe world.  We give thanks for the love and light she brings into this world that often does not contain enough of either.
