Remembering Marla


Dear James,
Seven years ago, the world lost a passionate advocate for civilians caught in the crossfire. Today, CIVIC will have a moment of silence in remembrance of our founder Marla Ruzicka and her Iraqi colleague Faiz Ali Salim.  We’ll pause our work at 2 PM EST, and we invite you to do the same.

Marla’s life is an example of the impact one committed individual can have. We honor her legacy every day by working to make warring parties more responsible to civilians in war. We train troops to prevent civilian harm. We work with warring parties to create civilian tracking and response systems, so they learn from mistakes and know who to help. And when military intervention is considered, as it may be in Syria, we remind them of the potential civilian cost.

We invite you to honor Marla's legacy and help us continue to grow with a donation to CIVIC.

In remembrance and commitment,
The CIVIC Team
PS.  Setting up a monthly, quarterly or yearly donation is easy, secure and ensures that our work will continue.  Click here to become a sustaining supporter.
