Christine Geovanis, presenté!

Posted by Mitchell - February 15, 2024 (entry 767)

I'm sending this message outside of the normal schedule for Chicago Media Action newsletters to share some important but sad news.

Christine Geovanis -- a longtime Chicago activist whose protest and arrest in 2002 resulted in the creation of what became Chicago Media Action -- passed away this week, on Monday, February 12, 2024.

If you're in the Chicago area, Chris' visitation is scheduled for Sunday, February 18, 2024, at the Kuratko-Nosek Funeral Home in Des Plaines, Illinois. Her funeral service is scheduled for Monday, February 19, at 11AM local time, also at Kuratko-Nosek Funeral Home. More information is here.

I'll have more to say about Chris and her legacy in the days and months to come.

Thank you.

Christine Geovanis, presenté!
