I just wanted to pass on the news that our dear friend and founding
member Martina Davis Correia passed away earlier this evening, surrounded by family and friends. Thousands of people all over the world have been touched and moved to action by her powerful voice and fiery spirit.  The courage and might she exhibited in fighting for her brother while battling breast cancer, captures the essence of her incredible strength and passion that will continue to inspire people.

I have been consistently moved by her courage and commitment to speaking the truth she spoke. As many of you, I feel blessed to have had the privilege to join her in her struggle.

I wanted to share this incredible photo essay in memory of Martina.

Please keep Kim, Lester, Ebony, Dejaun and the rest of the Davis family in your thoughts and prayers.
