SILVER--Ron. The Creative Coalition mourns the loss of Ron Silver, the organization's co-founder. Ron was a talented actor, a scholar, and a great believer in participatory democracy. Nothing could hold Ron back -- not even a debilitating illness. Ron Silver was a great activist who also was an accomplished actor. His contributions as an artist and as an advocate will never be forgotten.
