CTJ and ITEP Say Good Bye to Tax Justice Champion

| | Bookmark and Share

On April 9, Missourians lost a steadfast leader for tax justice, while advocates for progressive taxes across the country lost a colleague whose energy and devotion to her principles were second to none. Pat Martin founded and continued to lead Missourians for Tax Justice up until her death. She was active in economic and social justice issues for most of her life and was integral in the fight to remove food from the state sales tax base. Her resolve and dedication were often tested in Missouri's difficult political landscape, but Pat never let the situation get her down. Instead, she fought even harder and asked others to do the same. Pat expected much of those she worked with and even more of herself in the pursuit of justice. We will certainly miss working with her. It's been said of Pat's death that "Missourians have lost a bright light" and so have we. Read more about Pat's remarkable life here.
