    Felix your commitment to working with and for many people who
    can not speak about the issues that affect their lives is a true example
    of Vincent’s commitment to the voiceless and the people on the
    margins. Continue raising the issues that affect their lives and call
    upon us to to do the same. Dot Jackson
