Steve Wagner was a lifelong activist. He co-founded the Lake Merritt Peace Walk which is now in its 16th year. Among the many struggles he took part in was the 1999 KPFA/Pacifica fight against the hijackers, and he was an endorser of the UCR. Last summer he passed away due to a massive heart attack.
His memorial will be this Sunday, Oct 9, at the Humanist Hall in Oakland.
