RIP, Richard Oulahan

by folkbum

Milwaukee lost one of the Good Guys yesterday:
Richard Oulahan, a passionate, committed and outspoken fighter for the poor, who built Esperanza Unida into an award-winning agency dedicated to creating family-sustaining jobs, died Friday. He was 60.

Oulahan spent more than 30 years building the south side nonprofit into an agency that won national acclaim for its programs to train poor people in auto repair, welding and other skills designed to lead to well-paying jobs.
My thoughts are with my friend Dennis and the Oulahan family today.
