DES MOINES – The League of United Latin American Citizens Council 307 wants elected leaders to become more serious about violence against women after the stabbing death of Celia Barquin Arozamena.
Barquin Arozamena was stabbed to death Monday at Coldwater Links, a public golf course in Ames. Police charged Collin Daniel Richards, a man with a criminal record with murder.
“This culture of violence must be dismantled,” said Monica Reyes, the political director for LULAC Council 307. “Women are under attack, and we must unite to put an end to it, as well as all violence.
“We need our elected leaders and candidates to step up and tell us what they plan to do to stop this vicious mentality that women are somehow the lesser being, that they can be abused, kidnapped and killed in our state,” Reyes continued.
