Summary on the Rudy Lozano event held in Pilsen
An ordinary man took initiative and fought for those who were disadvantaged, that was Rudy Lozano.
On July 20th 2008 he was recognized for all his hard work. The Pilsen community came up with an idea to appreciate and not forget who Rudy Lozano was and what he did. The event attracted many people from many communities. Music was nothing to worry about since Djâ€™s from all over Chicago came out and played their hearts outs for this one man.
We interviewed some of the people that attended, for example there was a man named Danny Gomez and this is what he had to say, â€œI think that the event is a good idea because it keeps kids out of the streets for a day and out of trouble.â€ He mentioned that he lived around the community and that he had heard about the event from his cousin. He also added that that they had not heard much about Rudy but that he knew that he did something for the Latino and African American community.
Other people also had something to say about the event that was being held, for example David Hernandez said that he had heard about the event from a co-worker and the reason that he decided to come out was to support his family and help out with the children.
In conclusion, if we want to remember what our people did we have to keep holding events and reminding ourselves that there are and were people out there that
fought and are fighting for our freedom.
