Celebration of Linda Marie Thurston

Family, Friends, Comrades & Colleagues gathered at Judson Memorial Church in New York City (and virtually) to honor our dear Ancestor Linda

Linda Marie Thurston, our Sister and Friend, passed away in May of 2021. Linda spent a lifetime forging connections among people, organizations and communities in the movements for abolition, liberation and peace & justice. She is deeply missed. Over a year on since her homegoing and in the month of her 64th birthday, Linda’s family and community at War Resisters League and Critical Resistance invite you to A Celebration of Linda’s Life.

We gathered at Judson Memorial Church in New York City on Saturday, August 20, 2022 for an afternoon of reflection to remember and honor her life’s work. The program was live streamed and recorded, for those who could not attend in person. The day included reflections from Linda’s family and friends, readings from Linda’s writings, recordings of Linda speaking, music and spoken word performance, mementos and books, and a sacred space for Linda’s altar. Food and beverages were made available after the program.
