Remembering Graciela Chichilnisky’s daughter, Natasha

Graciela Chichilnisky and family are deeply grateful for the flood of messages of love affection and admiration from all over the world that came for Natasha since the shocking news of her untimely death became known on Tuesday night. These heartfelt expressions of love and sorrow are a tribute to a kind and generous human being who was also an intellectual force, as Yale Daily News wrote this week, and a striking, brilliant star. Natasha was just 27 years old but packed extraordinary experiences and lived a life of many, many more years than her natural age. The Yale Daily News published a beautiful tribute to Natasha, which you can view here. We would like you to join us celebrating her life on December 2 in New York to share among us the love we all feel in our hearts as she would like it best. Please write to and to let us know when you will join us. We look forwards to welcome you and sharing the feeling of wonder personal engagement and just being alive that we all seem to feel around Natasha and her life. December 2, 2014
