In memory of
TRESTON DAVIS-FAULKNER
  TRESTON DAVIS-FAULKNER   National Field Director of Jobs With Justice, lost his battle with cancer on October 26, 2015 in Atlanta, Georgia. Davis-Faulkner was a fierce advocate for dignity, justice and self-determination for all people. Throughout his career he led hundreds of thousands of people around the world in solidarity with workers attempting to organize for respect. He made a difference in significant campaigns for working people when he supported workers forming a union at Smithfield Poultry in North Carolina, organized nationwide community support for striking Verizon workers, and ensured that Indian guestworkers marching from New Orleans to Washington, D.C., had food, water and shelter along the way. In his private life, he was equally vigilant in providing gentle guidance and caring attention to his friends and family in their attempts to blaze honest and just paths of their own. He was always available to listen with an open mind and an open heart.   Davis-Faulkner was born on June 22, 1975, to Mary Faulkner in Lansing, Michigan, where he graduated from Waverly High School. He went on to attend Temple University in Philadelphia where he helped organize the Graduate Student Union and later joined the national staff at Jobs With Justice, where he founded its national training program and the Student Labor Action Project. He is survived by his wife and partner, Sheri Davis-Faulkner (née Davis), his son, Na'im Hanoi Faulkner, his mother, Mary Faulkner and many friends, family and comrades.   A viewing will occur on the evening of Thursday, October 29, at the Carl M. Williams Funeral Home located at 492 Larkin Street SW in Atlanta, GA, along with a Memorial Service on Friday, October 30, at a to-be-determined location. Those wishing to send condolences are asked, in lieu of flowers, to contribute to the education fund for his son, Na'im Faulkner by going to www.jwj.org/treston .
