The passing of Margaret Miner

It is with incredible sadness that we share the news of the passing of Margaret Miner. She passed away on Sunday, May 5th, peacefully and surrounded by her family.
Margaret leaves an incredible legacy through her lifetime of fighting for better environmental policy, environmental rights, and overall fairness and justice in all of our public processes.
Margaret served as Executive Director from 2001-2019 and continued her work here as a valued consultant. She continued to effectively engage on water planning efforts and the legislative session right up to her last days. It’s comforting to know that while her physical body may have been failing, her mind and spirit were still very strong.
If you are reading this, you most likely are a friend of Rivers Alliance because of Margaret and she has a special place in your heart. We share your grief. Her legacy will live on through our collective work to continue building on the solid foundations laid by Margaret.
It will be several weeks before a proper memorial gathering will be announced. We ask for your patience as her family takes the time they need.
