Now we mourn the loss of Mollie Lowery, the visionary co-founder of Lamp and long-time friend of LAPD, who passed away July 25. Her commitment – to not just ideas – but individuals on the ground continued until her death. She has inspired many people and will continue to inspire many people! Thank you Mollie.

Here is a video of Mollie speaking at our Skid Row History Museum in 2008 about her early days in Skid Row and founding Lamp Community.

Also: watch a clip of Mollie speaking on June 8, 2016 at our Hammer Forum: Police and People with Mental Illness: Avoiding Tragedy, Achieving Solutions’ as part of our performance ‘Chasing Monsters From Under The Bed’.
