Celebrating Cliff DuRand

On Friday night, March 17, our dear friend and compañero Cliff DuRand passed away following a sudden and brief illness. He died at home in bed. His wife Julie and his two dogs--Happy and Princess--were at his side as was his wish.

The Center for Global Justice will honor and celebrate his life and legacy and will continue his work and struggle for a better world.

Cliff was an honorary professor at the University of Havana. He introduced literally thousands of people to Cuba and its hope for humanity and the world. He was a teacher to all of us.

La lucha continua and, as Cliff always said, "Venceremos."
