Shontez ’Taz’ Denise Morris a former Board member of the Human Rights Alliance. Manager at Security Asset Solutions empowered Black female artist, and LOVE activist passed away suddenly and unexpectedly on March 17, 2022, from complications due to chronic asthma and the lingering effects of COVID at the age of 43.

In the short time Taz lived in Santa Fe she became known as a special asset and human to all of the businesses she worked with and a proponent of championing and nurturing people of color in the arts and in life. She touched a diverse cross section of humans in the city, the people that are the special fabric of the true spirit of Santa Fe.

Working with her family the Human Rights Alliance has set up a special endowed scholarship fund at the Santa Fe Community College in her name to be awarded on an annual basis to Black, indigenous or People of color wanting to pursue the arts.
