The Drug Policy Alliance mourns the passing of Henry van Ameringen, who died on September 9, 2020 at the age of 89. Henry was one of DPA’s most beloved, generous, and longstanding donors. We honor his commitment to ending the racist war on drugs, and his lifelong dedication to the liberation and happiness of LGBTQ people. He certainly leaves the world a better place than he found it.
The entire DPA staff and board sends their condolences to his spouse T. Eric Galloway, and to his family, friends, and the movements whose work he touched with his transformative support.
