Washington, DC -- Americans for Peace Now mourns the death of Sidney (Sid) Topol, our beloved longtime Board
member, an avid advocate for peace, an inspiring leader of the pro-Israel pro-peace movement in the United States,
a progressive philanthropist whose sharp mind and kind heart helped energize our movement for more than four
APN's Chair of the Board James Klutznick said: "Whether at the gala honoring him, breakfasts at the Ritz-Carlton,
or in his kitchen in the Back Bay, where Debra DeLee and I joined him for an APN Board meeting call, Sid was both a
hawk for peace and conflict resolution, and a down to earth good guy with a generous heart, a grin on his face, and
a twinkle in his eye. He will be missed, but not missing from our hearts and minds."
