At the early stages of any memorial effort, it is crucial to raise awareness among the local community to garner their support. These are some of the posters artist Rexiste created in collaboration with Ricardo's family.
We studied Cholula, the city where Ricardo was murdered and began to offer a diagnosis of what could be possible to honor his memory while ensuring his fate would never occur to anyone again.
In essence, Ricardo's Memorial is a skate park smack in the middle of Cholula's most public and safe place, it's Main Plaza. here, every week, together with Ricardo's father who is a carpenter, we would collect funds to build skate ramps and bars and get the criminalized skate youth community closer to the rest of Cholula's inhabitants.
