Grief + Spirit Care: Memorial Call for Murph

March 24 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

[English Below]

Nos entristece compartir que el pasado 22 de marzo de 2020, perdimos a unx queridx miembro líder y becarix de trabajo organizativo, Alexis “Murph” Murphy de SONG Birmingham. Desde 2012, Murph ha sido unx líder miembro comprometidx, con una pasión para transformar Alabama y el Sur. Conocimos a Murph como unx amante del cine, tranquilx, divertidx y amable, y unx organizadorx increíblemente brillante que tenía las paredes de su hogar llenas de papel de rotafolio con estrategias sobre cómo liberar a nuestra gente. Siempre se reía de lo que las personas decían en voz baja, porque era atentx– estaba siempre mirando, escuchando y aprendiendo. Murph también era agricultorx y disfrutaba de su tiempo con la tierra, con semillas en las manos y sus camaradas a su lado, sembrando flores y alimentos para su comunidad. Murph siempre cumplía con las necesidades que vio a su alrededor. Entendía que el trabajo organizativo es también quedarse tarde para limpiar y arreglar todo, haciendo las tareas necesarias que normalmente no se ven o no se reconocen.

Murph, eres y siempre serás el mejor ejemplo de lo que significa estar presente para nuestra gente. En este momento, tenemos que sentir nuestros sentimientos y amar a nuestra gente. Pedimos a todxs que mantengan a la familia, lxs amigxs y compañerxs de Murph en sus corazones y mentes, mientras recordamos a Murph y honramos su transición en unx ancestrx queridx. Estamos ofreciendo un espacio para que lxs miembrxs se encuentren. Si puedes, únete a nosotrxs para celebrar y recordar a Murph y todo lo que fue para nosotrxs.

It is with broken hearts we share, that on March 22, 2020, we lost beloved SONG Birmingham member leader and organizing fellow, Alexis “Murph” Murphy. Since 2012, Murph has been a dedicated member leader who was passionate about transforming Alabama and the South. We knew Murph as a quiet, funny, kind, movie lover, and an incredibly brilliant organizer who had the walls of their home, filled with flipchart paper with strategies on how to get our people free. They were always giggling about something someone said under their breath because they were observant– always looking, listening and learning. Murph was also a farmer and enjoyed spending time in the dirt, with seeds in their hands and their comrades by their side planting flowers and food for their community. Continuously, Murph saw a need and filled it. They understood that organizing was also staying late, cleaning up after, and doing the necessary tasks that typically go unseen or unacknowledged.

Murph, you are and will forever be the prime example of what it means to show up for our people. In this moment, we have to feel our feelings and love on our kindred. We ask that folks hold Murph’s family, friends, and comrades in their hearts and minds as we remember Murph and honor their transition as a beloved ancestor. We are holding space for members to be together. If you can, please join us to celebrate and remember Murph for all they were to us, and all they will continue to be.
