LOUISVILLE, KENTUCKY – A Memorial Celebration of the Life of Thomas F. Moffett will be held on Sunday, February 10, 2019 from 3:00 – 5:00 pm at First Unitarian Church, 809 South 4th Street, Louisville, KY. Tom was also known as “The Man in the Red Sweater” and was revered as a tireless Social Justice Activist and advocate for the rights of the underserved and disenfranchised . Video presentations by Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer, Former Mayor Jerry Abramson, Activist Mattie Jones and other community leaders will be shown at the program. Sponsoring groups will have information tables and a reception and networking opportunity will follow. Music will be provided by Committed Choir.

Tom’s lifetime of tireless work for racial and social justice serves as a model for all of us. His impact was widely felt on causes ranging from anti-racism and police misconduct to health care and equity in the public schools. Co-sponsors including Kentuckians for Single Payer Health Care, Grace Hope Presbyterian Church, Park DuValle Community Health Center, Louisville Showing Up for Racial Justice (LSURJ), Louisville Chapter of the Fellowship of Reconciliation (FOR), Kentucky Alliance Against Racist and Political Repression, Fairness Campaign, and Human-Kind Productions are working diligently to plan a fitting memorial for Tom and looks forward to your involvement and support.

The Co-sponsors plan to develop a Thomas F. Moffett Social Justice Fund to support continued advocacy and activism by individuals and groups.
