As we wrote upon her passing, Marti Kheel was a supporter, a mentor, and a friend. That’s why we were so very pleased when Carol J. Adams and Lori Gruen organized a memorial conference in Marti’s honor. Finding a Niche for All Animals: A Conference Honoring the Ecofeminist Work of Marti Kheel is taking place right now, Novebmer 9-10, 2012, at Wesleyan University. While we at Connect the Dots were unable to attend, we know that countless connectionists are there and we look forward to hearing your reports, learning of the connections and community you experienced, and most of all, having another chance to honor Marti Kheel. We’re there in spirit.
Marti lives on through Connect the Dots. She lives on through my commitment to feminist veganism. She lives on through my commitment to address sexual violence within the animal rights movement. These are things she gave to me. – Ashley Maier
