It's What Matters

It's What Matters

Fulbright scholar and activist Donna Ambrogi, 82, of Claremont, Calif., chuckles as she tells her story:

"Well my favorite time being arrested was after we had decided to house a group of refugees from Venezuela.

"For years we had toiled with the relationship with their government and we could not stand idly by as these people were running away seeking sanctuary.

"But our government didn't like that, so I was arrested and held in prison for 30 days.

"You do what you have to for what matters."
