Roy Garza, a member of the Mano a Mano board of directors from 1996 – 2001, died as the result of a motorcycle accident last week. Throughout his career as a social worker, Roy worked tirelessly on behalf of communities of color to diminish the impact of discrimination and to expand opportunities. He often volunteered time to Mano a Mano, helping to pick up medical supplies and pack cargo headed for Bolivia.
