Workers World Party mourns the tragic loss of Summer Smith, a founding member of the Salt Lake City, Utah, branch of WWP, who died from a long, heroic battle with cancer on Aug. 10. She was 41 years old. Summer was a single mother, a teacher and union activist.

An obituary in tribute to Summer Smith will appear in a future WW. Rest in power, Comrade Summer.
