Chancellor Sayde Ladov Remembers Larry Frankel, Civil Rights AdvocateSayde Ladov, Chancellor of the Philadelphia Bar Association, pays tribute to Larry Frankel, legislative director of the ACLU and long-time advocate for civil rights: “Larry Frankel was a smart, insightful and caring person who was passionately dedicated to his cause. A spiritual person, Larry had a great sense of humor and was always a pleasure to be around. No one can take away his many accomplishments and successes in life. And through it all, he was always wonderful, charming and genuine. Whenever Larry walked in, he just lit up a room and exuded so much energy. He has left his mark on so many people, and he will always be remembered as a terrific guy.
His death is a devastating loss to the civil rights community. We will keep Larry and his family, including his former long-timer partner Andy Chirls, in our thoughts and prayers.”
