Veronica Dahlberg is Executive Director of HOLA, a small, grassroots Latino organization based in NE Ohio focusing on Advocacy, Community Organizing and Civic Engagement. She spoke in front of St Casimir Catholic Church in Cleveland where she and others gathered to pray for a Miracle from the Polish icon Our Lady of Czestochowah and her Mexican counterpart Our Lady of Guadalupe to keep the family of Carmen Camarillo of Painesville together.
