According to her friend Mel Chin, visiting professor at GW’s Corcoran School of Art and Design, ‘Corrina was a feminist she wanted to end to violence against women. She was committed to fairness and justice, and always fought for the rights of others. For example, she’d be the first to point out that victims of violence in D.C. are disproportionately people of color.'”

What a loss.
