Remembering Kabir

Remembering Kabir

Graphic by Alfred Twu

In late November, our progressive community learned of the untimely death of our friend and comrade, Kabir Kapur. He was just 30 years old. Kabir was a longtime, active member of the Richmond Progressive Alliance, among other political groups in the Bay Area.

The RPA deeply mourns the loss of Kabir’s brilliant mind and warm heart. His moral compass was always pointed toward justice for all people. It is fitting that this tribute to Kabir is in the same issue as our election recap since Kabir was such a fervent follower of electoral politics. 

Kabir was also an organ donor. His final act was to donate parts of himself for three people whom he had never met. 

The RPA Communications Committee will include tributes to Kabir in forthcoming issues of The Activist. We plan to compile stories to be shared with Kabir’s family. If you had a connection to Kabir, consider submitting one or more of the following items:

  • Photos 
  • Stories, including short anecdotes 
  • A song, to be included in a Kabir remembrance playlist, given that he loved music so much
  • A lengthier written tribute (about 500 words)
