In the 1960s, she founded the Northampton chapter of Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom, the Sane Nuclear Policy Committee, and the Valley Peace Center. She ran the local office of the American Friends Service Committee from her Northampton home for several decades. For her lifelong commitment to the Peace Movement and her unrelenting opposition to war through war tax resistance and an eco-pacifist lifestyle, she was awarded the Courage of Conscience award May 4, 2007, by the Peace Abbey in Sherborn, Massachusetts. An archive of her papers is kept at the Sophia Smith Collection at Smith College in Northampton, Massachusetts.

Amy Goodman is an American broadcast journalist, syndicated columnist, investigative reporter and author. Since 1996, Goodman has hosted Democracy Now!, an independent global news program broadcast daily on radio, television and the Internet. Goodman had been news director of Pacifica Radio station WBAI in New York City for over a decade when she co-founded Democracy Now! The War and Peace Report in 1996. Since then, Democracy Now! has been called "...the most significant progressive news institution that has come around in some time" by professor and media critic Robert McChesney. She is the recipient of numerous awards, including the Thomas Merton Award, a Right Livelihood Award, and an Izzy Award for "special achievement in independent media". In 2012, Goodman received the Gandhi Peace Award for a "significant contribution to the promotion of an enduring international peace". Goodman is the author of five books. Her latest is The Silenced Majority: Stories of Uprisings, Occupations, Resistance, and Hope.

Mike Burke is the senior news producer at Democracy Now!, where he has worked since 2002. He is also co- founder of 'The Indypendent,' a monthly community-produced newspaper based in New York City. Burke graduated from UMass Amherst in 1997. During his time at UMass he served as an arts & opinion editor at the Massachusetts Daily Collegian and hosted a late night music show on WMUA called, "The Sound is Now." After graduation, he worked as a reporter at the Greenfield Recorder and Springfield Union News. He also helped start Flywheel, a volunteer-run community arts space in Easthampton.
