Kate Dwyer

With deep sadness, we note the sudden passing of Kate Dwyer on May 12, 2016.  Kate was a longtime member of the CEELI/ABA ROLI family and served as a volunteer in Central Asia, consultant in Georgia, Country Director for Central Asia and Country Director in Tunisia.  She most recently assisted ABA ROLI with an effort in Lebanon last year and also served during her husband, Terence Blackburn’s work with ABA ROLI in Jordan, Morocco and Egypt.

We are tremendously grateful for Kate’s outstanding leadership and many other contributions to ABA ROLI as well as her tireless efforts to promote the rule of law around the world.

Memorial contributions may be made in Kate’s honor to Barnard College (Class of 1973) in support of student scholarships.

Condolences may be sent to Terence Blackburn at: tlblackburn@caa.columbia.edu or to the attention of Terence Blackburn, c/o Olivera Stojanovic, American Bar Association, 1050 Connecticut Ave., N.W. Washington DC 20005.
