Vale Pat Cody - DES Action Founder

We have sad news of the passing of Pat Cody, the founder of DES Action USA. Pat was ever the consummate activist and she was a remarkable women. During the process of our establishing DES Action Australia-NSW, Pat was a great mentor and friend. If not for her invaluable ideas and encouragement, the group may not have lifted off the ground. She will be very much missed.
