WJCNY Statement on the Death of Selena Hidalgo Calderon

The staff of the Worker Justice Center of New York expresses our sincere regret in learning of the untimely and tragic murder of Selena Hidalgo Calderon. We send our deepest condolences to Selena’s mother, Estela Calderon and all of Selena’s family during this difficult time. Selena was known to our organization and the local community as a dedicated mother and farmworker. The outpouring of support and assistance received from members of the local community, especially the community of agricultural workers across the region, to Selena’s family and to law enforcement has been incredibly helpful in locating Selena and in the on-going search for her one-year old son, Owen. WJCNY stands in continued support of Selena’s family and asks anyone who is able to donate to assist her family through this tragic time: https://www.gofundme.com/support-estela-and-her-family
