In Memory of Roxana Ng
We were all deeply saddened by the death of long-time Board of Directors member, Roxana Ng, in early 2013.

Roxana was a vibrant, dynamic, and caring Board member serving for nearly fourteen years. We will miss her dedication to the fundamental notion of international solidarity between the North and the global South as well as her commitment to the idea of equality in so many facets of her life – as an activist, academic and feminist.

We are grateful to have counted Roxana among us, and will miss her.
