Title: Kurtz, Linda Hallenborg
Date: 1998 Apr. 3
Description: Biographical information, photographic image, abstract of oral history interview, and selected audio clips of Linda Hallenborg Kurtz, social and political activist for women's change and other issues, who worked to support women's and other social causes through her efforts as a lobbyist, administrator, consultant, and educator. She was the founder and chair of the Georgia Women's Political Caucus (GWPC), an officer of ERA GA, Inc., vice chair and member of the board of directors of the National Women's Political Caucus (NWPC) and director of governmental affairs for Planned Parenthood of the Atlanta Area. She has also been a lecturer at the University of Pittsburgh, Georgia State University and the Martin Luther King, Jr. Center for Non-Violent Social Change, as well as the president of her own consulting firm, a political strategist and a campaign consultant. She participated in the anti-Vietnam War movement during her college years, and after moving to Georgia, she became involved in ERA Georgia and a founding member of the GWPC. In later years she received a three-year Kellogg Foundation grant to create an "interconnected global community based on mutually interdependent economic, ecological and spiritual values." The audio clips talk about the Georgia Women's Political Caucus, the National Women's Political Caucus and the experience of working with other women, and the day of the vote for ratification of the ERA in Georgia
