I was arrested on the Capitol steps last Monday. I am one of the Democracy Spring 429, the largest number of arrests on a single day at the Capitol in U.S. history. I'd never done anything like that before. I'm glad I did it now. Unless things change, I will do it again.

We must act upon his warnings if our children, nation's future and founding principles -- subverted and still sullied by the legacies of slavery, Native American genocide, exclusion of women and non-propertied men of all colors from our electoral processes -- are to be saved.

She worked in this capacity from her home in West Berlin, becoming involved in the peace movement, doing violence-prevention work in the school system, and eventually pioneering efforts in mediating cross-border family conflicts.
