It is with a heavy heart that we say goodbye to our friend John Mack, long-time volunteer, United Way of Greater Los Angeles board member and civil rights champion.

John dedicated his life to justice and equality and embodied courage, leadership and integrity.

John was a driving force in helping to transform United Way of Greater Los Angeles through his leadership:

It has been a tremendous honor to watch John weave his legacy into the fabric of our organization and the Los Angeles community.

Our best way to pay tribute to him is to continue his tradition of standing up for what’s right, for showing courage even when it’s hard, and to inspire others to join us in the movement of a more equitable and compassionate world.
