Dear Florida Greens and friends,
It is with a sad heart that the Green Party of Florida shares the loss of a tireless advocate for working people. Jeff Roby passed yesterday.
Jeff was a brilliant writer who devoted himself to Green Party efforts. Our collective loss is great. Losing Jeff to COVID from contracting the virus while a longterm hospital inpatient being treated for an unrelated condition reminds us of how broken our systems are, dysfunctioning systems that have, in effect, broken the heart of our dear Rose Roby, 25 year spouse to Jeff, also a dedicated worker for the Green Party of Florida and the Green Party of the United States.
Please join us in honoring Jeff at an online memorial to be announced and consider helping Rose, now a COVID widow. Consider filling out this helper/support form https://docs.google.com/forms/u/1/d/1ZQH7CdrkzOC6q5kq5ySmZm1mntJcjSlHjy40a4fmytU/viewform?edit_requested=true and/or donating to our fundraiser to assist Rose as she navigates her grief and transition. https://gofund.me/c5c8e0e9.
