From the People’s Law Office Family,
Dennis Cunningham, our dear friend and 50 plus year comrade in the struggle for justice and human rights, died today. He was an inspiration for, and one of the founders of, the People’s Law Office, and a mentor and role model to all of us and to many others.
He represented with creativity and militancy, Fred Hampton and many other Black Panthers, the Attica Brothers, Judy Bari, Puerto Rican independentistas, Rasmea Odeh, Geronimo Pratt and many others. He brought his improv experience at Second City to the courtroom and to his brilliant written advocacy.
Dennis was one of a kind, and will be deeply missed by all those who knew him and loved him. Special condolences to his wonderful children, Delia, Joe, Miranda and Bernardine, his three grandchildren, his brother Robbie and his nieces and nephews.
Rest in Power our Good Brother
La Luta Continua!
