Maggie Kuhn lived only blocks away from Wyck Historic House while she fought tirelessly for elder rights. She started what became known as the “Gray Panthers” after she was forced to retire at the age of 65. The Gray Panthers fought against ageism and for nursing home reform, along with other rights for seniors.
This program will be hosted by Sue Leary, who worked with Ms. Kuhn the last years of her life. Sue Leary is currently the Executive Director of the American Anti-Vivisection Society in Jenkintown, PA.
