This simple necklace honors Dorothy Day, a woman who was dedicated to fighting for social justice. Born in 1897, she was a woman not afraid to speak truth to power. Dorothy organized and attended protests demanding women's right to vote, peace, and class equality. Considered a radical in her day, she was arrested several times for peacefully protesting. She established Catholic Worker houses, whose doors open to thousands of the homeless every day--providing comfort, warmth, and food.
The artwork was created by artist Julie Lonneman to honor Dorothy Day and the Catholic Worker movement. 100% of the profit from this necklace will go to purchasing supplies for the Catholic Worker Hagar House in Wheeling, WV.
