Doris Haddock

Love is about cooperation, sharing and inclusion. It is about the elevation of each individual to a life neither suppressed nor exploited, but instead nourished to rise to its full potential–a life for its own sake and so that we may all benefit by the gift of that life.
-Granny D

Doris “Granny D” Haddock (January 24, 1910 – March 9, 2010) was an American politician and liberal political activist from New Hampshire.

Haddock achieved national fame when, between the ages of 88 and 90, starting on January 1, 1999 and culminating on February 29, 2000, she walked over 3,200 miles across the continental United States to advocate for campaign finance reform.

In 2004 she ran unsuccessfully as a Democratic challenger to incumbent Republican Judd Gregg for the U.S. Senate.

In the final year of her walking on this green Earth she was a member of our Board of Advisers.
