Second to None:

Shashi Assanand was a visionary, a community builder and a trail blazer in the field of family violence.  A role model for immigrants, her leadership exemplifies respect, dignity and acceptance and a steadfast commitment to these values in thought, feeling and action. She worked uncompromisingly for the idea of "us"

She is not with us in person but will be with us in spirit for years and generations to come.
