Cherisse Luxa has passed away. I didn’t know Cherisse, but others did. Condolences to her family.
Cafecito at Daily Kos:
This morning, Washington’s netroots community lost one of its most wonderful and spirited activists when Cherisse Luxa, the founder of Burien Drinking Liberally, succumbed to stomach cancer. Cherisse was sixty two. She resided in the 34th LD, known for its strong and vibrant Democratic Party organization.
If you have ever attended Drinking Liberally, you almost certainly know of Cherisse’s incredible energy and her unstoppable drive to make our community a better place. From her decades as a King County Sheriff’s Deputy to her impressive track record as an activist an advocate, Cherisse made a huge difference, both for Burien and for the broader community.
Cherisse, like many of us, got religion with Howard Dean’s run.
Cherisse touched thousands of lives and was a role model for many of us. We will sorely miss her.
