Dear Friends of EastSide,

It is with a heavy heart that we say goodbye to our friend, mentor and Advisory Board member Yuri Kochiyama. With the losses of Amiri Baraka, Chokwe Lumumba, Fred Ho, Mabel Williams, Maya Angelou and now Yuri, we at EastSide are left to reflect on everything these elders have contributed in their lifetimes, and we ask ourselves: what are we doing to continue their work? How will we fill the massive void of leadership, analysis, critique and creativity that defined them? How are we honoring their lifelong commitments to self-determined struggles and truly radical work?
