I'm a 50 year social justice activist turned reporter.
I was the first wave of feminism in Atlanta and a member of the National Organization of Women.
Later I moved on to Civil Rights, LGBT Rights, anti-war, environmental issues, pro-Palestinian, Native American Rights, Black Lives Matter, police violence, Climate Change, etc. I have never met a progressive issue I did not support.
I monitored klan activity in North Georgia, was attacked by the Klan, sued the Klan and won.
I was a part of a church group of volunteers that went to Nicaragua to be human shields on the Honduran border to prevent the U.S. supported Contras from killing impoverished peasants.
I attended a Social Forum in Venezuela and witnessed the poverty and the social reforms implemented by Hugo Chavez to help the poor. The poor loved Chavez and the rich hated him because he took from the rich and gave to the poor.
As part of Atlanta Grandmothers for Peace, I was arrested with a dozen other Grandmothers protesting the Iraq War.
I was part of a cultural exchange program to Cuba and was impressed with the free medical clinics and education programs for Cubans.
I joined the Grannies Respond Caravan and traveled to Brownsville Texas, to support immigrants when the Trump administration separated children from their parents and put them in detention camps.
I consider myself a Democratic Socialists and a humanitarian.
