On the evening of March 8, 2015, Judith Rosenberg passed away. A co-founder of Austin Tan Cerca de la Frontera, Judith dedicated her life to practicing the principles of solidarity, and in turn, inspired countless others toward similar practices. Many remember Judith’s strong will, her vibrant spirit, that mischievous sense of humor, and a brilliant intellect, but her legacy reaches beyond the defining characteristics that friends, family, and community can recall. Judith also believed in the power of youth, in the emerging generations of leadership, and integrated them into her ideas of a better future. When Judith died, a star might have been extinguished, but she made sure in her lifetime that there were countless others to keep shining through the darkest of nights.
Austin Tan Cerca de la Frontera created The Judith Rosenberg Fund for the Future to honor Judith. This fund will strengthen ATCF programs with a focus on mentorship and leadership development for young people, especially women, people of color, and the LGBTQ community. These initiatives may include:
o Delegation scholarships for youth and students
o Stipends for internship opportunities
o Mentorship to build the next generation of transnational solidarity
This fund is not separate from ATCF, but provides a space to honor a significant member of our community in a focused way.
You can donate to the fund by sending a check to:
Austin Tan Cerca de la Frontera

Austin, TX 78721
Checks should be made out to “Austin Tan Cerca de la Frontera," and include “The Judith Fund” on the memo line.
Thank You for your support!
The inaugural fundraiser began on March 5, 2016 and ended April 21, 2016, Judith's birthday. Each year, ATCF will raise funds to continue this fund and along with it, Judith’s legacy at Austin Tan Cerca de la Frontera.
