We mourn the loss of the brilliant writer, activist, and educator Barbara Ehrenreich, whose steadfast focus on inequity underscored all her work, including the tremendously influential Nickel and Dimed. She created the Economic Hardship Reporting Project so that the voices of the working poor could be amplified. Erhrenreich was awarded the 2004 Puffin Prize for Creative Citizenship. We are grateful for her many contributions and extend our condolences to her loved ones and colleagues.
