Dear PIC friends and ‘ohana,
It is with profound sadness and a heavy heart that we share the sad news that our much loved Leanne Ferrer, Executive Director of Pacific Islanders in Communications (PIC), passed away late last night. Words cannot sufficiently describe what she meant to all of us as a tireless leader, advocate, friend and family member. She's touched innumerous lives in immeasurable ways as she's supported and contributed to the independent filmmaking world and in day to day life.
With Leanne's passing, she leaves behind a legacy that will long-serve to inspire and empower us to continue telling Pacific Islander, and the larger BIPOC community's, stories.
We have lost a truly caring and generous soul. Please join us in sending prayers and positive energy to her family as they go through this trying time.
PIC Team - Cheryl, Maluhia, Roann and PIC's Board of Directors.
~ With the blessing of Leanne's family
