A bit about Maggie Kuhn ...

Maggie Kuhn (August 3, 1905 - April 22, 1995) was born in Buffalo, New York. She was a lifelong American activist. She is most famous for founding the Gray Panthers movement in 1971 after being forced into retirement by the Presbyterian Church. The Gray Panthers became known for advocating nursing home reform and fighting ageism, claiming that "old people constitute America's biggest untapped and undervalued human energy source." She also dedicated her life to fighting for human rights, social and ecomonic justice, global peace, integration, and an understanding of mental health issues. She wrote her autobiography, No Stone Unturned, in 1991. Four years later, she died of cardiopulmonary arrest in Philadelphia at the age of 89.
