Clare Hanusz

Our beloved friend and advocate of immigrants, public schools, and all humanity – Clare Hanusz – has passed away after a two year battle with cancer which she generously shared with us. We will greatly miss her valiant and good humored spirit.

Clare joined with others to protest “Furlough Fridays” and served for many years on the board of Parents for Public Schools until her illness.

The image above is of Clare with her kids in 2009 participating in the sit-in protest in Governor Lingle’s office.
