yesterday’s news stub & a sad announcement

A sad post from our friend Danny Jenkins:

Some of you may remember Suzi Rodriguez, one of the founding co-chairs of the HIV Drug and Alcohol Task Force nearly two decades ago.  I heard today that Suzi passed away last week.  She was a close colleague and friend to me, and in the early days of HIV a relentless advocate for those without a voice. Always controversial, outspoken, not always ethical, but profoundly effective at seeing that otherwise overlooked people living with HIV and addiction were included.  Most who worked with her, including myself had a great affection for her, though not everything she did.  Whatever your memory of Suzi, she is not forgotten.

 

A recognition for Suzi is being planned for sometime mid-July in East Los Angeles.  I will post details here as they are confirmed.  I hope you can join me and scores of others who knew Suzi.

Nunca te olvidaremos.  Gracias, Chicana.
