What Else She Said

My grandmother on my father's side was very social action oriented. She grew up in New York City at the time of the Depression. She started several of what they called aid organizations for people who had no money, no shelter, no food. Actually, one of them still exists today - called the Harriet Aid Society of New York City...

Probably my passion for social justice came from my grandmother on my father's side. I don't think she talked about it as much as she just lived it. She was a very poor woman, but she always had a little bit of money and a lot of time to whether it was working at a hospital for children or working at the Harriet Aid Society - whatever it was, she always had time to be involved.
