Crystal Bird Fauset with First Lady, Eleanor Roosevelt.
Before becoming the first African-American woman elected to a state legislature in the United States, Crystal Bird Fauset worked with AFSC to expose broad new audiences to the issues of race in America.
Anna Cox Brinton, a Quaker and classics scholar, helped feed children after WWII and went on to serve on AFSC boards and committees for most of her adult life.
In celebration of Women’s History Month, we pay tribute to and offer a brief picture of a few AFSC staff and advisors whose courage, strength, and wisdom helped foster peace and social justice throughout the world.
AFSC is a Quaker organization devoted to service, development, and peace programs throughout the world. Our work is based on the belief in the worth of every person, and faith in the power of love to overcome violence and injustice. Learn more
