Reunion in Rio


Some former Foundation staff gathered with former grantees at the home of Shep Forman, LAFF’s president, and his wife, Leona, in Rio de Janeiro on January 3 to reminisce and catch up over a meal featuring the traditional Brazilian feijoada, a meat and rice stew.
The Ford staff pictured here are, from left to right:
Peter Fry, program officer and representative in the Rio office from 1985 to 1989, and assistant representative in the Harare sub-office in Zimbabwe from 1989 to 1993; Prescilla Kritz, executive assistant to the representative in the Rio office from 1970 to 1996; Christopher Welna, program officer for Human Rights and Social Justice in Mexico from 1983 to 1987, and for Governance and Public Policy in Brazil from 1987 to 1991; and Shep Forman, program specialist in Brazil from 1977 to 1980 and director of Human Rights and Social Justice, Governance and Public Policy in the headquarters office in New York City from 1971 to 1996.
The grantees who were there were Jose Murilo de Carvalho and Roberto DaMatta.
