As we have done throughout the years, FACTS will regroup and work towards victory in 2008!

FACTS' leader, Leon Shirley Passed Away

Our brother, friend, member and street warrior, Leon Shirley passed away on Friday, May 19, 2006. Leon provided us with a model of strength of purpose and undying perserverence. Many will remember Leon for his work during the Prop 66 campaign, for the strong statement he made in Lisa Scott's film Under Three Strikes, and for his weekly presence on street corners in Watts and South LA (if Leon worked 6 days a week, he would be out on the 7th day passing out FACTS' flyers). All who knew him will sorely miss his leadership and his courage. We have lost a true warrior.

FACTS is setting up The Leon Shirley Memorial and we encourage your participation. We ask only for your commitment to carry on our fight, Leon's fight to end this brutal Three Strikes Law. Our pledge to intensify the work to free not only Gaylon Shirley but all nonviolent Strikers and to eventually free our state from the barbarity of the Three Strikes Law is what Leon has always asked of us. In making that pledge, we will honor the memory and legacy of this great man
