What we need is a "21st Century Full Employment Act for Peace and Prosperity" which would make it a mandatory requirement that the president and Congress attain and maintain full employment.

International Women's Day

Often when we celebrate important days people associate "famous" people with these events.

On this International Women's Day I would like to remember the work of Virginia Glenn, who, with her husband William Glenn, was active in the movements for civil rights, peace, social and economic justice for many decades and never gave up.


























Virginian Glenn was a civil rights, peace and labor activist who ran for office on the Progressive Party ticket and was involved for many years with the Women's International League for Peace and Freedom.
