SANDLER--Marion. The Board of Directors and staff of The American Civil LIberties Union are deeply saddened by the passing of our dear colleague and friend, Marion Sandler. Marion was a pioneer in every way - a passionate force for freedom and justice. Her unique gift was the way she consistently put that considerable passion into action. Through her and her husband Herb's extraordinary philanthropy, she made a vital difference to the issues that she cared about - and that matter to Americans. The ACLU will forever cherish the significant impact that Marion has made. Our lives and work will surely not be the same without her.
