Call in to speak with the host
On August 27th we heard the shocking story of how a disabled female African-American veteran became the target of a campaign of harrasment in a small southern town. Lisa Willis Groves joined us to explain how a minor dispute led to a mayor, the local district attorney and others stonewalling her attempts at justice. She won the state's Jefferson award for her community service to veterans who had been unable to get the help they need from the government. We talked about how the state police of West Virginia, the US Attorney's offce for the region, the FBI and the Office of Civil Rights in the Department of Justice all turned a blind eye to the return of Jim Crow justice in the rural south. Lisa is an inspirational example of the power of love motivating a Soldier For Peace to fight on behalf not only of her brothers and sisters in arms but for the sake of all people everywhere and most importantly, for our children.
