We mourn the loss of Jeff Adachi. The tragedy of a brilliant life cut short deepens our sense of loss, and yet… as the eulogies at his memorial rolled, they sharpened the meaning of the gifts, the legacy Jeff Adachi has left. A warrior with such deep compassion, immutable political will, a compelling commitment to gender and racial justice, and such abiding love, is rare.

We embrace his memory with the promise of carrying on his fight, our fight.
