Kathryn McMahon — An Emergency Appeal

Monday, April 2, 2018

Kathryn McMahon, an old friend who is going to have a major operation, is in need of assistance during her period of recovery, and a former student of hers has started a GoFundMe campaign. Kathryn taught in what was then the Women’s Studies Department at CSU Long Beach for many years, though she had retired by the time I started my job in the Department of English.

Kathryn is probably best known as the founder of CAST (Coalition against Slavery and Trafficking), and it would be my hope that all of those who contribute to that organization at its annual fundraiser would now also contribute with equal generosity towards her recovery at this point in her life. Those of you who know of her life understand the unlikely context of her being the instigator of such an important project, and how it would behoove us to honor her for her extraordinary courage and determination.
