GLIDE joins with many in the Bay Area and those across the nation in mourning the passing of Richard Blum. GLIDE President & CEO Karen Hanrahan and GLIDE Co-Founder Reverend Cecil Williams remember the life and spirit of Richard:
“A truly remarkable individual, Richard was a change agent for radical inclusiveness, a social justice advocate, a former GLIDE Board member, and a longtime member and supporter of our community. We are deeply saddened by his loss.”
“A San Francisco business executive, philanthropist, and partner of Sen. Dianne Feinstein, for decades Richard was a steadfast champion of GLIDE’s work to help more people off the streets into stability and transform systems to enable equity for all and bring lasting change, not only to this city but to the world.
GLIDE holds his family close to our hearts, and we offer them our love, prayers, and support during this difficult time.”
