Amy Hendrickson

Amy Hendrickson is a software consultant that programs language used for scientific typesetting. She is a peace activist and started the local peace group, Brookline PeaceWorks. She was a campaign manager for Randall Forsberg in her write-in campaign for Senator. Randy is well known as one of the originators of the nuclear freeze movement, and her campaign was a way of getting more attention for the need to abolish nuclear weapons while also protesting Senator John Kerry’s capitulation in supporting the Iraq war. Amy believes that perhaps her most satisfying action was organizing an international demonstration that included activists in 17 countries who demonstrated against the impending Iraq war in front of their local US embassy.
