In Memory of Ann Kranz

Ann Kranz, a program director at the Minnesota Center Against Violence and Abuse (MINCAVA) , died over the weekend due to complications from a rare form of Muscular Dystrophy. Ann was instrumental in the development and expansion of the Violence Against Women Online Resources (VAWOR), a collaborative project between the U.S. Department of Justice, Office on Violence Against Women and MINCAVA. Ann helped to make VAWOR the place on the Internet to go when looking for research, training or other information related to interpersonal violence. Ann was also a poet, and an exceptional singer.
