Sean’s sisters Ashley and Michelle voiced their concerns regarding police brutality and pushed for change. Moreover, Michelle said, “We’re trying to bring real change and accountability to the Bay Area but, more importantly, here in California. A lot of people think, with California being a progressive state — a blue state … (but) there’s a lot of injustices that happen day to day.” Even though the event was to remember Sean and his life, her sister tried to use it as a platform to put pressure on elected politicians to pass the reforms faster.

Moreover, Beatriz said, “Young people of color are unfairly penalized by the police system and we’re demanding accountability. If Sean was doing something wrong, we’ll find that out. All I know is he was on his knees with his hands up as a sign of surrender. He should’ve had the right to a court date.”
