Penny Sanger: A True Inspiration for Us All

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of a long time VOW member, Penny Sanger, on July 13, 2017, at the age of 86. Penny dedicated her life to peace education and activism. She wrote “Blind Faith: The Nuclear History of Port Hope, Ontario“ in 1981. VOW presented her with the Anne Goodman Award for Peace Education in 2015. Penny will be greatly missed and we offer our deepest condolences to her family and friends. A memorial and celebration of her life will be held in late summer or early fall– details will be announced shortly.
