Friends remember peace and justice activist at memorial Sunday

From page A2 | June 20, 2014 |

A potluck and remembrance of the life of longtime Davis resident Carolyn Pearce Sugars will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. Sunday, June 22, at International House, 10 College Park in Davis. All are welcome.

Sugars was a well-known activist and leader in the peace and justice community in Davis for more than 20 years. She served on the board of Citizens for Inter-American Cooperation and Short-Term Emergency Aid Committee. She supported and hosted Guatamalan war refugee families through the Davis Sanctuary Movement, and she helped and visited Rutilio Grande, El Salvador, one of Davis’ sister cities, numerous times.

Sugars was recognized for her work as the first recipient of the city of Davis Peace and Justice Award in the 1980s.

“Carolyn was an amazingly thoughtful, courageous, pro-active person who truly lived a life inspired by the fundamental teachings in the Gospels,” said CIAC board member Kevin Wolf.

After raising her six children, Sugars worked at UC Davis in the department of nutrition and then the department of community health at the School of Medicine as a nutritionist/researcher, working on many cardiovascular disease prevention studies until her early retirement in 1991.

Photos or memories of Sugars may be sent to murryk2@comcast.net. No RSVPs are needed to participate at Sunday’s remembrance.
