Remembering James Redford

Remembering James Redford

In Loving Memory of James Redford

James Redford, our Co-Founder, Board Chair, chief storyteller, passed away on October 16, 2020. 

Compassion, humanity, generosity, and a love of life. These are the phrases we often hear when asking The Redford Center community how they remember James Redford and his storytelling. Even in the darkest of times or around the most complex of topics, James always dared to ask: “What can we do to make things better? What can we do to help each other?”

Join us in celebration of James’s spirit, courage, and optimism through a thoughtfully crafted tribute film: Remembering James Redford. We’d like to thank and acknowledge Karen Pritzker, Jen Bradwell, John Behrens, Brook Holston, Nicole Amyx, Kevin Otte, Daniel Marracinno, Jill Tidman, Jon White, and James’s son Dylan Redford who directed this short film, for coming together during a time of grief to honor James’s life in this beautiful way.

We also reflect on his legacy of environmental and social justice storytelling in a special tribute book

Every day, we continue our work in honor of everything that James stood for and all he envisioned for the future.
