An Interview with Activist Therese Stawowy

September 11, 2020

Therese has been a lifelong advocate for social justice.  Decades before social media made internet trolling a common practice, Therese Stawowy experienced virulent hate mail from known and unknown sources.  In the days following her participation in a voting rights march in Selma, Alabama, in 1965, Stawowy, received daily mail containing praise from friends and strangers as well as insults, many from anonymous sources.  It didn’t stop her then and she’s still fighting.  I had the delight of running into her at the Women’s March in 2016 and she’s now involved with our get out the vote campaign.  In her own words, “change demands action”.   Listen and learn from Therese, a voice of experience.
