Jon FromerLa Peña is saddened to learn of the passing of compañero Jon Fromer.  Jon was a sterling example of a cultural activist who used his talents to further the struggle for peace and social justice.  As Joe Hill said, “Don’t Mourn, Organize!”  Jon’s spirit will always reside at La Peña. Jon Fromer, Presente!

    When I came north from San Diego where I had done guerrilla theater and song, I found the Freedom Song Network a connection to a new community. Jon’s voice and spirit were like a beacon. I hope there is a community celebration of his life and would live to hear if one is planned.
