“Anything that I was part of, I was part of it because we did it together.”
Kathy Boudin, our beloved friend, mentor, and long-time partner passed away on May 1, 2022. We are devastated by Kathy’s passing and our hearts are with her family, Chesa and David, her work partner Cheryl Wilkins and Center for Justice family, and her vast beloved community on both sides of the walls.
Kathy was truly extraordinary – a mother, sister, partner, colleague, and leader who made a profound impact on countless lives and on the movement locally and globally. We were honored to partner with, learn from, and love Kathy over many years. She was one of our closest collaborators, who deeply shaped our work, analyses, thinking, and approaches. Her powerful moral compass, integrity, loving energy, creativity, and dedication to collectivity, community, healing, and transformation were – and will continue to be – a north star for us.
