In 1960, Doris "Granny D" Haddock and her husband successfully campaigned against planned hydrogen bomb nuclear testing in Alaska, saving an Inuit fishing village at Point Hope.
In 1999, at age 88, she spearheaded a movement for campaign finance reform and walked 3800 miles across the country to bring attention to her cause.
In 2000 she, along with 31 others, was arrested for reading the Declaration of Independence in the Capitol and was charged with the offense of demonstrating in the Capitol Building.
Democracy wasn't something she had. It was something she did.
