Leah Christine Terry born 1993 in San Jose, California. passed in May 2017 in Atlanta, Georgia.

A passionate socialist activist, Leah's dedication to social justice was borne out of her own struggle with disability and her family's struggle against corporate America.

Leah's father, Alton Terry, a poultry farmer, sued Tyson Farms for canceling his contract after he helped to organize his fellow farmers. Her experiences with both of these struggles propelled Leah on a path of organizing, with a focus on the intersection between capitalism and ableism. While attending Sewanee: The University of the South, she was an active member of Sewanee Young Democratic Socialists. During this time, she also served on the 2014-2015 YDS Coordinating Committee. After leaving Sewanee, she moved to Atlanta, where she was involved with the Metro Atlanta Democratic Socialists of America.[1]
