Marianne Hamilton, 97, dedicated her life to the antiwar movement

Marianne Hamilton traveled to some of the world’s hot spots, including Hanoi during the Vietnam War, to advocate for peace. She pressed her case at home, too, co-founding Women Against Military Madness (WAMM), the state’s most enduring antiwar organization that last month celebrated its 35th year.

“She was fearless,” Erica Bouza, herself a longtime peace activist and the wife of former Minneapolis Police Chief Tony Bouza. Hamilton, she said, was an energetic and persistent critic of U.S. foreign policy.

Hamilton died Aug. 6 at her apartment in Minneapolis. She was 97.
