Letter to the Community

Dear Kenyon community,

I wanted to send a very heartfelt thank you on behalf of Leopoldo, myself and family to all the students, professors, staff and trustees who took the time last week to learn about my brother’s case. We hope our time together inspires you to learn even more about the events in Venezuela and to continue to follow his case. Even better, these events may inspire some of you to become more actively engaged with something or someone in this world.

It would mean the world to Leopoldo to hear from you. If you have the time or interest to write a letter to my brother, I will make sure he receives it. These letters serve as a lifeline to someone in his circumstances.

They can be emailed to or mailed to:

Friends of a Free Venezuela, Inc.

P.O. Box 29585, Richmond, VA 23238.


Adriana López Vermut
