Dorothy Day and the Catholic Worker Movement, 1968-1973 93 items

Dorothy Day (November 8, 1897 - November 29, 1980) was an American journalist, social activist, and devout Catholic convert. In the 1930s, Day worked closely with fellow activist Peter Maurin to establish the Catholic Worker Movement, a nonviolent, pacifist movement that continues to combine direct aid for the poor and homeless with nonviolent direct action on their behalf. These images were taken between 1968 and 1973 at the Catholic Worker Movement house located in the Bowery neighborhood in New York City, at the Catholic Worker Movement farm in Tivoli, New York, and at United Farm Workers (UFW) demonstrations in California.
