Cindy Sheehan

Cindy Sheehan is an internationally known anti-war activist who was radicalized when her son Casey was killed in Iraq on April 4, 2004. She rose to prominence when she started a make-shift peace camp (Camp Casey) in Crawford, Texas near the vacation home of then President George W. Bush. Since then, she has run for political office three times and published seven books. Besides hosting a podcast, Cindy Sheehan’s Soapbox, and trying to end perennial wars, her favorite pastime is hanging out with her five grandchildren.
