We join in mourning with so many others whose lives were touched by Del. Longtime friends and supporters of Astraea, Del and Phyllis were remarkable not just in their love partnership of over 50 years, but in their political partnership.
Del will be sorely missedas a feminist leader who stood up tirelessly across many issues and for many communities. From lesbian rights to ending domestic violence, Del had a tremendous impact. With Phyllis, she was instrumental in building the movement that we continue today, in the U.S. and around the world.
Astraea extends our deepest condolences to Phyllis and the rest of Del’s family. We hold them in our hearts as we continue our work with the unflagging spirit and conviction that guided Del’s life and that inspires ours.
