In the words of our sister Esperanza Martell

Sandra was a powerful sister who dedicated her life to her family and community. She is the first of our Circle Sister's to pass, becoming our loving ancestor. She will be missed by all those that worked with her and were touch by her love. When Sandra came to the first Circles and experience its power of transformation. She made sure she broth us to her block. She is the reason CASA ATABEX ACHE is were it is physically. She is the reason the young women's program was created. She served on the CASA broad, learned every thing she could and with our support created the Freedom Community Center to supplement our work. Many of our young women begun with Sandra and at the age of12 came to CASA. We worked with parents jointly. She wanted to make sure our youth did not sarcoma to the street culture as she had. Her work to free her spirit from all the ills of capitalism was powerful. Sandra we learned so much from you. She was against the war being waged in her community and across the world. She went with us to Cuba, supported us taking community youth to Viegues,PR and was with us at peace demonstrations and many women rights conferences all over the country. She was generous, carriages, sister worrier and friend.
Beloved Sandra we will never forget you. To your family we send our love. We will continue to stand with the women and children of Mott Haven of the world. We Love You and Thank You for Being You. Con Mucho Amor.
Esperanza Martell
