Last year, communities mobilized and responded to console Simmie's surviving family and friends.

This Sunday, February 22nd at 7pm, students of FAU's Lambda United will be organizing a memorial on the murder site, NW 10th Avenue & West Sistrunk Blvd. / NW 6th Street to increase awareness of this 1 year unsolved murder.

Please honor Simmie and support the leadership of FAU's Lambda United students and attend Sunday's memorial.
