Fran Peavey was a bold, humorous and deeply caring woman whose way of working has emerged from her experiences in social change campaigns across several continents and four decades - the early civil rights struggles, anti-apartheid movement in South Africa, the clean-up of the Ganges River, the Middle East conflict and the refugee crises in Bosnia and Kosovo.
Fran was founder of Crabgrass (http://www.crabgrassusa.org/), a non-government organisation in San Francisco that works locally and globally on environmental and human rights issues. Fran is author of "Heart Politics" and "By Life's Grace: Musings on the Essence of Social Change".
Her latest book, "Heart Politics Revisited", is an inspiring account of how powerful changes can come about by the cumulative effect of many small and life-affirming actions made by ordinary people.
