Vera Martins (2nd February 1955 – 13th September 2015)
A truly inspirational woman.
Vera was 42nd Street’s CEO for over 10 years. Vera ensured young people were and continue to be at the heart of everything we do at 42nd Street. She was never afraid to speak freely about the things that remain fundamental: rights, equality, community; she put her head above the parapet when it mattered most.
‘A bird doesn’t sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song.’ (Maya Angelou)
Vera requested that in celebration of her life, donations be made to support the work of 42nd Street.
