From Pat Chau

A Hunter College student

I am so sorry about your loss. Of course I remember your close friend, Rhonda Copelon. Even from that one meeting, I really got the sense that her determination to share in a better world was only matched by her humility as a person. It saddens me deeply that such a courageous person, whose efforts in reproductive agency and rights have been so profound, has passed away. A poignant loss for the world, but her work and legacy will continue to inspire others to do more...I wonder in those formative moments when Rhonda began her work, if she had any idea how her dreams and duties would become the very stuff of reality--contributing to a fuller account of freedom that we all enjoy today
