On August 25th, long-time Puerto Rican Revolutionary Independentista and Socialist Francisco “Franky” Velgara Valentin passed away after a 2-year battle with cancer.

For over 50 years, Franky dedicated his life to the liberation of his homeland, Puerto Rico, the freedom of U.S. held Political Prisoners, to solidarity with the Cuban and Vietnamese revolutions, and the establishment of a socialist society. From across the U.S., Puerto Rico and beyond, he was a beloved father, godfather, brother, friend, comrade, and mentor to his community and family. He was an unmatched force of nature, whose dedication and commitment to liberation touched various communities around the world.

Join us on Saturday, February 4th, 2023, at Holyrood Church as we pay tribute to his revolutionary legacy and history of struggle.

We will feature live music, poetry, video tributes, and global solidarity messages.
