A Great Public Defender, Stu Sugarman, died unexpectedly. We mourn with his friends, family, and the community at large. He helped make those of us who were out on the front lines in the 90s and 00s feel safe, at a time when almost everything else was making us feel like targets, like the work we were doing to create a world that we wanted to live in was useless and stupid. Thank you for that, always. Rest in Power.
