Marty Nathan
Marty Nathan feels her roots are in North Carolina, where her first husband was murdered by Klansmen and Nazis, and where she worked with friends for years to reveal official complicity with White Supremacy, leaving as a legacy the Markham-Nathan Fund for Social Justice. She recently retired as a family doctor who in her work at Brightwood Health Center in Springfield, MA, helped found the Cliniquita Fund for the healthcare of undocumented workers. She is a regular newspaper columnist about climate justice and a founder of Climate Action Now, Springfield Climate Justice Coalition and 2degrees. She is married to Elliot Fratkin and has three inspiring children and two grandchildren.
