Yesterday, Assemblymember Ed Chau (D-Monterey Park) honored Ernestina Barbara Yamashiro as the 2017 “Woman of the Year” for the 49th District during a legislative ceremony held at the Assembly Chambers. The ceremony recognizes women who have made outstanding contributions to California, as part of Women’s History Month.

“I am recognizing Ernestina, because of her unwavering commitment to serving grieving families during some of the most difficult times of their lives, which is the loss of a loved one,” said Assemblymember Ed Chau.  “She is truly a role model and pillar in the community that has turned a very difficult and personal experience into a lifelong mission to transform the lives of others, in an empowering way, by making sure that families of homicide victims are aware of the resources available to them, and by promoting peace and educational activities that attempt to end violence. She is, without a doubt, deserving of this recognition and much more.”

Ernestina Barbara Yamashiro is the founder of Survivors of Murdered Children-San Gabriel Valley and a volunteer advocate for families of homicide victims. Survivors of Murdered Children-San Gabriel Valley, is an organization designed to help support, educate, and advocate on behalf of families of homicide victims.  Ms. Yamashiro became an advocate for families of homicide victims after her sixteen year old great-niece Sammantha Salas was murdered. Survivors of Murdered Children-San Gabriel Valley provides families with Thanksgiving food baskets, Christmas gifts for siblings, certified grief counselors, ensures families have an appointed court advocate throughout the homicide trial, and an in-depth understanding of the legal proceedings. Ms. Yamashiro is a long term resident of Alhambra, California.
