As we reported on Friday, Adele Starr, the mom who became the first-ever PFLAG National President passed away at 90. Her commitment to taking what Jeanne Manford started and making it a national organization is alive today each time we look at what a powerful national network of people united ot advance PFLAG’s mission of support, education and advocacy that we’ve become.
Today at her funeral services, PFLAG Regional Director Steve Krantz read a letter written by our current National president, Rabbi David Horowitz. You can read the moving tribute here.
There have also been several great articles written about Adele Starr:
PFLAG National will be featured on this evening’s Derek & Romaine Show on Sirius OutQ Radio talking about Adele Starr, her legacy, and how it should serve as a reminder to everyone the power of one person’s commitment to change. If you want to listen in, there’s info about the show available online.
