Hammond Making a Change (Really)

Gloria Hammond, co-founder of Sisterhood for Peace, has a commanding presence onstage. When she greeted the audience gathered recently at the Utah Museum of Fine Arts auditorium, she obviously was displeased with the lack of unified response. In Baptist preacher-style, she again said hello to the audience and this time was greeted in return with a rousing collective, “Hi, Dr. Hammond!” Hammond came to present a documentary film about humanitarian relief in Sudan's decimated Darfur region, efforts that included building new schools, medical facilities and homes for the displaced. Hammond’s take-charge approach is refreshing. There are still those willing to take the bull by the horns and truly fight for social justice. Finally, here's someone who preaches “change” and actually delivers. Check out Hammond's inspirational story here. (Tom Nelson)
