It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we inform you that Karen Kondej passed away earlier this week.
Karen was a long time friend and fierce advocate for survivors of Military Sexual Trauma. Karen worked endlessly lobbying the Congress in her home state of Arizona to co-sponsor MJIA and the STOP Act.
Karen was an original founder of the Arizona chapter of the National Organization for ...Women, an organization that supports the Military Rape Crisis Center mission. Together with AZ NOW we maintained the national first memorial and healing garden dedicated to survivors of Military Sexual Trauma.
Karen was a good woman, dedicated to always helping others, and I am sure you feel her loss as much as we do.
The Military Rape Crisis Center extends its sincere condolences to Karen's family and friends.
