We’re grieving the loss of Susan DeMarco, who passed away peacefully on Sunday, April 1. DeMarco was both Hightower’s life partner and writing partner, contributing considerable amounts of genius to the Hightower Lowdown and his books over the years, as well as a fierce advocate for justice and the common good in her own right. We can’t begin to fathom what our lives will be like without her.

A number of folks have contacted us wishing to make a donation in DeMarco’s honor, and we are so grateful for your love. Her wishes were to continue supporting the work of the Lowdown, and thus donations can be made below. We will be earmarking these donations and announcing their objective at some point in the future, once things have settled.

From all of us here on the staff, and from Hightower himself, we thank you.
