Remembering Geraldean Matthew

On September 26th of 2016 the friends and colleagues of an incredible woman, activist and farmworker, Geraldean Matthew gathered to honor her memory. The stories, memories, and community shared will sustain those who knew and respected Geraldean.  Our community still feels the loss of such a committed and beloved advocate for change. 

"She could hang out in the state capital and be swanky, and she could be picking endives the next day," said Ron Habin, an anthropologist who partnered with her over the years. "It's all the same to her."

We want to sincerely thank Bethany Rodgers of the Orlando Sentinel for her beautiful tribute to the one and only Geraldean. Please read the piece she wrote honoring Geraldean.
