Vice President of Communications and Outreach
My heart is broken by the passing of Evelyn Lieberman, our longtime friend and valued colleague, my three-doors-away neighbor, and former highly-skilled Children’s Defense Fund (CDF) director of communications from 1981-1988.
Evelyn was a funny, no-nonsense, get-to-the-point colleague who tried to whip me and her CDF colleagues into shape to be the best possible messengers and child advocates for children left behind. She was a tough, very smart and strategic colleague, and a very kind, loyal and loving friend. My last glimpse of her was of her walking up my steps to put a generous check through my mailbox to support children beating the odds. She fled before I could run and say thanks. She left us much too soon but her footprints and spirit will remain and enhance our ongoing advocacy for our nation’s children.
The Children’s Defense Fund Leave No Child Behind® mission is to ensure every child a Healthy Start, a Head Start, a Fair Start, a Safe Start and a Moral Start in life and successful passage to adulthood with the help of caring families and communities.
