In Memoriam: Rose Braz, Climate Champion
Renowned and beloved San Francisco environmental and human-liberation activist Rosemarie Braz died last week after a three-year battle with brain cancer.
The Center's longtime climate campaign director, Rose worked tirelessly to build and strengthen ties between climate, environmental and social justice, labor, and faith organizations. She launched several influential national climate and anti-fracking coalitions, including Californians Against Fracking, and helped pass fracking bans in six California counties.
