Shelley Miller (1954-1994) was a close friend to many, neighborhood and community activist, and citizen of the world. For several years she used the ECM kitchen to prepare weekly rice and beans dinners to raise awareness and funds to support freedom movements in Central America. She directed her estate to support her heartfelt causes, and it has funded renovations to this kitchen as an enduring tribute to her passion for freedom and justice. The ECM kitchen is dedicated to Shelly Miller. http://etext.ku.edu/view?docId=ksrlead/ksrl.kc.millershelley.xml
