Rest In Peace, Rebecca Tarbotton

Very sad news today, we've lost a legendary activist voice for our planet, Rebecca Tarbotton. We must carry on the good fight in her memory.
 

Official Release, From: Rainforest Action Network

From grist:
"The green movement has too few visionary leaders and too few women leaders and too few leaders under the age of 40. Tragically, this week it lost one leader who stood out in all three categories.

"On Dec. 26, Rebecca Tarbotton, executive director of the Rainforest Action Network, died while vacationing along the west coast of Mexico, north of Puerto Vallarta. In a freak accident at the beach, she got tossed around in rough surf, took too much water into her lungs, and asphyxiated. She was 39 years old."
