"Our thoughts and prayers are with all of the family and  friends of Willis Edwards. He was a strong and determined advocate for justice and civil rights. Willis Edwards laid the groundwork, for the many events that took place over the last 30 years in California for the advancement of Civil Rights. He was a pioneer in the truest sense of the word. His life and legacy will live on through the love he gave to those he called family and friends."
