The Coalition is deeply saddened by the recent passing of philanthropist John C. Haas. Mr. Haas was a true champion of community service, and a 42-year supporter of the Urban Affairs Coalition. Haas first became involved with one of the Coalition's predecessor organizations, the Urban Affairs Partnership, in order to address concerns of racial inequities in employment, economic access, and education.  He remained committed to the Coalition and its mission throughout the years, most recently serving as the Honorary Chair our 40th Anniversary Celebration from November 2009 to November 2010.  He will be truly missed. All of us at the Coalition send our deepest condolences to Mr. Haas' family.
