Loved ones of Shanquella Robinson continue efforts to have case resolved


On Saturday, dozens of people gathered at Little Rock AME Zion Church to mail 1,000 letters to Mexican authorities and The White House calling for answers regarding Shanquella Robinson’s death.

The letter campaign comes shortly after a December rally, also held at Little Rock AME Zion, and a January balloon release at her gravesite to celebrate what would have been Robinson’s 26th birthday.

Family members, friends, activists, and County Commissioner Pat Cotham prepared their letters in a small room inside the sanctuary.

Many participants wore bright pink clothing and sealed their letters in pink envelopes to honor Robinson.

After writing the letters inside the church, participants marched down the street to the post office to mail the letters. As they marched, participants chanted, “arrest the Cabo six,” “no justice, no peace,” and “say her name.”

After, participants put their letters in the mailbox and prayed that the letters would reach their destination.
