Antonia Cedrone Presente

The late Sharon Pavlovich, Richie Marini, Fran Korotzer, Antonia Cedrone; unknown NYPD. (But Antonia definitely had his badge number.)

Our friend and colleague Antonia Cedrone died last month after an illness.  Our favorite photo of her is this one, doing what she did countless times on the streets of NYC as a legal observer with the National Lawyers Guild.  She would approach everyone in the NYPD in the same way: "I need your badge number."

She wasn't only an observer; she was an advocate.  She cared, and cared for, many hundreds of people in her nursing and psychology practice.

A memorial will be held in New York Saturday August 12.  If you'd like to attend, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
