On July 22, over 200 community members celebrated the life of Judy Kesselman, Founder of The L.I.N.K., Rockland County’s oldest Lesbian organization. The room was filled with love as Judy was remembered for her passion for the environment, animals, children’s education, family, and Women’s rights. Judy’s obituary from the New York Times can be viewed here.
You can make a donation in Judy’s memory in the following ways:
Judy Kesselman Room in the Rockland County Pride Center
Judy Kesselman Memorial Fund for Early Childhood Programs
Judy Kesselman Bench in Bear Mountian State Park

Thank you, Judy K. On your shoulders, we proudly stand.
