Statement by Lynn Jondahl at the induction of Patricia L. Beeman into the Michigan Women's Hall of Fame. Jondahl was a former member of the Michigan House of Representatives and a strong advocate for South African divestment. He recounts Pat Beeman’s activities in more than a decade of anti-apartheid campaigns that reflected an attitude of 'Think Globally, Act Locally." He tells of her persistence, for example, in displaying photos and handing out literature about apartheid in the rotunda of the State Capitol.
