Anita Fong

January 1, 2017

With profound sadness, we announce the passing of Anita Fong, longtime PAAWBAC Board member and Woman Warrior, on December 5, 2016. She was hospitalized in August and succumbed to a rare disease. As Anita was always a fighter, her death came as a shock to her family and friends. We remember her as a fierce advocate for Asian Pacific Islander women, especially the younger women whom she enjoyed mentoring.

To honor Anita, PAAWBAC has established the Anita Fong Legacy Fund. Donations to this fund may be made as follows:
