March 16, 2016
Most people spend their retirements unwinding from the world, but activist Peggy Thompson is as busy as ever trying to change it. A woman of many causes over the decades, humanizing the immigration system one visit at a time has become her passion as a member of Friends of OC Detainees. "When you start to get to this stage in life, for me, it's important that I use these productive years I have left to leave the world a little bit of a better place," she says.
