It’s been an extraordinary year since we announced the campaign to exonerate my grandmother in our spring 2016 newsletter.
Like many of you, my family watched the clock tick down to the end of Barack Obama's presidency, hoping that in his final hours he would act to exonerate my grandmother, Ethel Rosenberg. Though that didn't happen, I hope you'll take a moment to read my father and uncle's thoughts below, about what this campaign did achieve.
I join them in being immensely moved and appreciative for all the support this effort received. Thank you SO much --- Jenn Meeropol, Executive Director
Around the December holidays, the campaign to exonerate my grandmother, Ethel Rosenberg, got a huge boost:
On Thursday, December 1st, my father and uncle will travel to the White House to make a public plea to President Obama to exonerate my grandmother, Ethel Rosenberg, and to deliver our petition with 40,000 signatures.
