A Visit with a 97-year old Ranger

“The nature of democracy is that it will never stay fixed. It wasn’t designed to. Each generation has to recreate democracy in its time or it will die.”

–Betty Reid Soskin, 97-year-old ranger and interpreter at the Rosie the Riveter WWII / Home Front National Historical Park.

Our gratitude to ranger Soskin for her lifelong public service and her powerful insights over multiple generations about the contributions of women, African Americans, labor and youth in shaping and changing democracy for the benefit of all.
