Remembering Liz Perle

Common Sense Media logo Common Sense Media 8/20/2015 Betsy Bozdech

Today everyone at Common Sense Media is mourning the loss of Liz Perle, our beloved editor-in-chief and one of the founders of our organization. After a long battle with cancer, Liz died peacefully at her home in San Francisco on August 19, surrounded by her husband and children. (Click here to read the New York Times' coverage of her passing.)

Those of us who had the unbelievable pleasure of working with Liz since Common Sense was founded 12 years ago know that her talent, passion, wisdom, humor, and loving spirit infuse every aspect of our organization and the work we do for kids and families. We recently created the Liz Perle Fellowship for Editorial Excellence as one of several ways to recognize her extraordinary contributions and gifts to all of us.

Liz's insight and, yes, common sense will live on as we all strive to live up to the core values and beliefs she was instrumental in creating: Our Ten Beliefs.

We will miss her every day.
