We are saddened to share with you the news that former JARC Board Member and longtime friend Hal Baron passed away yesterday following a long illness. Today our thoughts are with Paula and the family as well as his many friends and colleagues working in so many areas of social change. Hal was a founding leader and longtime board member of Jane Addams Resource Corporation (JARC). Hal served on the Board of Directors for over 25 years, including four terms as its Board Chair (1995-1999). In this capacity, Hal spearheaded a capital campaign to launch JARC's Training Center for the Metalworking Trades on Ravenswood Avenue. Hal was most passionate about policy advocacy and helped to root JARC in conversations about workforce policy at every level. Hal remained on JARC's Policy Committee after his retirement from the JARC Board of Directors. He remained a wise and vital voice in this work. In addition to his leadership, Hal also supported JARC and other endeavors through the Communitas Charitable Trust. Hal's progressive vision included not only workforce development but also environmental and economic justice in many forms and places, These interests culminated a lifetime of social and political activism in movements that shaped our world along with struggles that persist today. Hal believed in the self worth of every individual and worked unceasingly toward a society that would reflect this value. He was an optimist and always looking ahead to the next task. We will try to live up to his example. We will miss him dearly. Guy Loudon Executive Director
