Minority Fund,

In Memory of Richard Elias.

During his eighteen years on the Pima County Board of Supervisors, Richard was a fighter for social justice, our environment, and for those of limited means.


He had an extraordinary moral compass, dedicating his life to our most vulnerable communities – advocating for the disenfranchised while challenging the status quo.


Richard lives on through the inspiration he instilled in the Southern Arizona community. Richard was and remains a force for positive change.
