We at Humanity United are grieving the tragic death of Gabriel Stauring and Katie-Jay Scott Stauring of iACT. Gabriel and Katie-Jay were loving partners, parents, and humanitarians who worked throughout their lives, and in some of the most difficult and complex crises in the world, to alleviate human suffering. They uplifted so many with their deep commitment to equality and partnership, to deep listening, and to both showing up and coming back. They modeled these lessons with love and compassion, and we pray that love and compassion will be returned to their children and extended family during this difficult time.

As friends of Gabriel and Katie-Jay, and long-time partners and supporters of iACT, we know the best way to honor their lives is a call to action. To learn more about iAct or to help, please visit or [email protected]. A gofundme effort has been created to assist their family.
