The Best Way to Work for Change Is to WORK for Change
Susan Notes: Here is a remarkable story of one woman getting things done. More than a decade ago, this website's premier cartoonist, Georgia Hedrick, launched a years-long campaign to gain recognition for Sarah Winnemucca, a Pauite teacher and activist from Nevada. Each state has the right to two statues in the National Statuary Hall, and since Nevada had only one, Georgia launched a campaign to honor Sarah.
in 1991, I found a book in the Central Library written by a Paiute woman named Sarah Winnemucca. I read it. Published in 1883, it told a story first hand of the situation the Paiutes suffered and what Sarah did about it.
As Eric Crump, noble webmaster for good causes, wrote, "The best way to work for change is to work for change!"
