Homage to Our Brother and Friend

Category : appreciation

On March 12, 2019, we received a phone call to rush to the hospital. As we walked into the doors of the Emergency Room at MCV, we received the news that our brother was gone.

Mr. Husain El-Amin served the people. He turned his past into a path for redemption. He worked at the homeless shelters in the City of Richmond, he mentored youth, he provided housing for those in need, he was a certified state home inspector for Commonwealth Catholic Charities and he was a champion in the fight for criminal justice reform. Through lived experience, he was in a fight to deter others from going through the systems that he went through. He was not only our brother; he was our friend and our partner in the fight for justice. Thank you for all of the support and help. Though it is time for you to rest, we will continue our fight…

Rest in power
