Kathy Boudin died on May Day 2022 at 12:59 PM. Her son Chesa Boudin and her life partner David Gilbert were by her…
Angela Davis: “Kathy was one of my oldest friends. We’d known each other since high school and done work against the prison industrial complex for the last twenty some years since Kathy herself was released from prison.”
Geraldine Downey, Niven Professor of Humane Letters, Department of Psychology, and the Director of the Center for Justice, Columbia University; “Kathy exemplified a meaningful life after decades in prison. Her influence will be felt for years to come in our work and the efforts of so many others.”
Chesa Boudin, Kathy’s son and the current San Francisco District Attorney: “My mom fought cancer for seven years in her unshakably optimistic and courageous way. She made it long enough to meet her grandson, and welcome my father home from prison after 40 years.”
