Sunday marked Cleveland’s 45th annual Puerto Rican Parade, a celebration of culture and heritage in the city.

But this year, perhaps the most exciting part for many parade-goers, was seeing Gina DeJesus as she smiled and proudly waived the Puerto Rican flag down East 9th Street Sunday.

For the DeJesus and Ruiz family, it was not only a time to celebrate culture but a time to re-energize their fight for those missing in the area.

Gina’s father, Felix DeJesus, took the stage Sunday at the Cleveland Municipal Muni Lot saying, “I want to tell you Gina, Amanda and Michelle are doing beautiful,” adding, “I got to tell you something, our work is not down.  We have more beautiful children out there that need our help.”
