6th Annual Angel Tree Lighting on Civic Plaza

To honor the young lives lost to violence and abuse.

December 16, 2021

The Albuquerque community came together on Thursday, December 16, 2021 on Civic Plaza to light the Angel Tree for the holiday season. The tree celebrates the young lives we have lost to violence and abuse.

Mayor Tim Keller, City Councilor Lan Sena, Albuquerque Police Department Chief Harold Medina, Albuquerque Fire Rescue, Guardians of the Children, and the Albuquerque Hispano Chamber of Commerce joined to celebrate the young lives and light the Christmas Tree for the 2021 Holiday Season.

The mission of Guardians of the Children (GOC) is to recognize and react to child abuse and educate the public to do the same; to serve as advocates to provide strength and stability to families in crisis; and be an answer to the prayer of an abused child or teen for courage, support, and protection.
