ATHENS, Ga. -- Members of the Athens Immigrants' Rights Coalition are joining the call for answers in the alleged abduction and killings of 43 Mexican college students from Ayotzinapa.
The group organized a vigil last week in conjunction with the Undocumented Student Alliance and the Hispanic Student Association at the University of Georgia.
One of the students spoke about the fact that she hasn't been able to visit her grandparents for many years due to the instability in Ayotzinapa, the region where the missing students' teachers college was located.
"This really spoke to me, and I wanted to show my support in any way I could," said Reilly Lerner, a board member of HSA. "The vigil was an important step in informing people of the situation and what is going on away from home."
The vigil included a reading of the biographies of the students.
