The Sissy Farenthold Fund for Peace and Social Justice

Home » The Sissy Farenthold Fund for Peace and Social Justice

Sissy Farenthold (’49) was a tireless, fearless warrior for those without a voice. At the request of family and friends, the Bernard and Audre Rapoport Center established this memorial fund to help ensure that Sissy’s legacy lives on, and that her voice continues to be heard. The fund supports academic, advocacy, and creative work on a broad range of issues to which Sissy was committed, including peace, environmental and climate justice, and reproductive and sexual rights.

We welcome donations of any amount, whether one-time or recurring. As we work to build the fund, we are especially grateful to those who contribute or pledge at the following levels:

Founder: $10,000 or more
Circle of Friends: $5,000 – $9,999
Ally: $1,000 – $4,999

Our warm thanks to the many generous donors who have already donated to the fund.
