KINDNESS & COMPASSION

The foundation of my political activism comes from my moral values, which I describe using the Jewish concept of “Tikkun Olam.” Tikkun Olam posits that kindness repairs the world. I translated that into action by becoming a precinct committeeperson, joining the ACLU, picketing realtors who wouldn’t rent to people of color, becoming active in the League of Women Voters, marching against the Vietnam War, standing up for the rights of farm workers, and on and on.

I’ve been very impressed with her involvement with Desert Progressives Indivisible, which to me shows a true commitment to devote endless resources (her time and energy) to make Arizona more progressive and a better place for all of us to live.
