I had the wonderful privilege of interacting with the extraordinary Dr. Maathai on several occasions. Her life and her work are an instructive model for advocates around the world. I am sad for the absence of her voice, vision, and influence, but she has left a legacy that will endure in our hearts and minds. Please join me and hundreds of her friends on November 14th as we remember the woman, her story, and her work.
