Memorials to Woody
It is likely that as time passes a variety of memorials to the life of Woody waill be created. Thus far, a few things have already happpened:
- The Robert Woodward Memorial Fund was established by the Board of Trustees of the church soon after the shooting to honor Woody's commitment to the natural world.
- The group justiceforwoody, a community that coalesced in the wake of Woody's death, is a living memorial to Woody, in that it tries to embody his values. It's original goal was to seek justice to address the injustice by calling for a full and unbiased investigation and release of all information pertaining to it. The community is also committed to carrying forward Woody's work.
- Memorials in the form of changes in law have not yet come into existence, but there are some movements in that direction. Two represenetatives from Brattleboro have proposed legislation that would eliminate conflicts of interest such as the Davis case revealed, and lead to more civilian review of policing.
