About Dorothy Day
Dorothy Day was an American journalist and social activist who converted to Catholicism and later co-founded The Catholic Worker newspaper with social activist Peter Maurin. The collaboration turned into a non-violent social movement, known as the Catholic Worker Movement, which aims to aid the poor and push for social justice through peaceful actions. The Catholic Church has considered Day for canonization since her death in 1980.
