Helen Toribio--revolutionary activist, tireless educator, warrior-spirit, beloved partner and friend--passed away last night after a two-year battle with cancer. She was always available to younger activists like myself, and had an amazingly strong spirit that inspired me deeply, especially during these last days when her body was fading. Helen's brilliant light has only grown brighter with her passing, and I send prayers and love with her as her soul journeys to a place of rest and beauty.
Rest in peace and power, ancestor Helen. While you will be dearly missed, we know your spirit will be with us always.
