Beyond the call

Original post made on May 2, 2014

There is only so much time in a day. For many people, the clock hands spin away while they're on the job, doing chores and putting food on the kitchen table, leaving only a moment or two to relax before bed.

Any community to have such stellar individuals as the six seniors being honored on 18 May by Avenidas is blessed. I especially would like to single out Carolyn Tucher, whom I have known for many years, for her invaluable contributions to East Palo Alto. Without her willingness to serve on the board of directors of Community Legal Services in East Palo Alto, Inc., (CLSEPA) between 2002 to the end of 2013, the organization would not have survived its uncertain infancy following the decision of the board of directors of the East Palo Alto Community Law Project to disband at a meeting on 13 May 2002. CLSEPA has not merely survived, but thrived and has over the past 12 years served more than 10,000 low-income clients from around the Bay Area, including San Mateo, Santa Clara, and Alameda Counties. This extraordinary organization has literally saved lives with respect to domestic violence cases thanks to the relentless determination of Carolyn Tucher to sometimes lead the board to make very painful, certainly stressful decisions, now financially very sound with a staff of currently 22 and the ability to aid the poor and disenfranchised in a growing climate inhospitable to the poor and powerless. Her legacy through this one organization promises to bless humanity hopefully for decades and possibly generations to come.
