New Board Members Joining Love Serve Remember Foundation

Posted by Tania Rodriguez on

LSR Board Members 2020
Love Serve Remember announces the expansion of our board to include two amazing luminaries, Mirabai Starr and Durga Stef Weingerz. Each brings important perspectives to the board and substantial experience with their work on diversity, equity and inclusion, women’s empowerment, environmental justice, the needs of the next generation, and a deep and intimate connection to the teachings of Ram Dass and Neem Karoli Baba.

The board has been working to expand for many months as we anticipated the passing of Ram Dass and to adapt to the changes that would engender. Given the radical shifts in our world, we are thrilled to have these two new board members bring their depth of understanding, heart-centered presence, and wise clarity to the table.

Please join us in welcoming both Mirabai Starr and Durga Stef Weingerz as we forge a new road map for the Love Serve Remember Foundation.
