Speakers expressed hope, love and anger before a capacity crowd, including Mercado-Santiago’s family, and at one point the entire gathering pledged to ratify a community statement resolving to meet again on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day Monday to “draft action plans to establish a peaceful community.”
