Karen Askew

Partnership for Southern Equity mourns the loss of Karen Askew. Karen Askew was a tireless champion for equity in her role as a key community organizer of PSE's regional equity efforts. Cancer may have claimed her body but not her memory. We will miss her greatly.

Services are planned for Friday January 3rd at Warren Memorial United Methodist, 181 Joseph E. Lowry Blvd. SW, Atlanta, GA 30314.  This page will be updated as more details will follow.

Dwayne Patterson, Nathaniel Smith and Karen Askew
