    Dorothy arrived at the Peace Camp from Austin, TX a few days before its official opening. She spearheaded a collective media effort to produce a slide show about the Camp and used it in nearby communities to raise funds and awareness. She was hired as a Program Coordinator the next summer and moved to Boston that fall to begin Seminary school.
