Sad News: Dean Volunteer Emily Pearlman has Passed Away


We are sad to report that Emily Pearlman passed away over Thanksgiving weekend. Emily was a tireless Upper West Side political activist. Several members of DFNYC have known her since her involvement in the grassroots campaign for Howard Dean's presidential campaign in 2003 & 2004. After the Dean campaign, Emily was one of the smart, energetic progressives who helped get DFNYC off the ground by educating us on the issues and characters in local politics in New York City. She was funny, not afraid to speak her mind, and talented - she ran a business in which she made beautiful pottery!


Both the NY Times and the Big Apple Coffee Party have more about her life:
