A Vision of Hope and Justice
Our friend and colleague Amy Watkins was tragically murdered on March 8, 1999. This year marks the 10th anniversary of her death. Amy dedicated her life to social justice and community building; she was passionate in her work to combat broader social ills of poverty, violence, discrimination, and deteriorating communities. Gather and celebrate with us, as Amy did, the belief that community organizing has the strength to transform people and create more equitable societies.
Amy Watkins Scholarship Fund
Fellow students at the Hunter College School of Social Work established the Amy Watkins Scholarship Fund as a tribute to Amy’s life and to the ideas she believed in as a social worker. The Amy Watkins Scholarship Fund supports future community organizers in their pursuit of social justice through need-based scholarships to the Hunter College School of Social Work. To date over $80,000 has been raised, enough to endow two partial scholarships. The goal of the Fund is to offer two full scholarships each year, indefinitely.
