Anne McGrath Mulderry was born in 1936 in Brooklyn NY; in 1945 her family moved upstate to Albany, where she was educated, married, and raised a family. In that time she was an active member of Pax Christi, advocating for nonviolent solutions to political and social justice issues, and working for an end to the war in Viet Nam.
On Sept 11th, 2001, her sixth of eight children, Stephen, was working in the South Tower of the World Trade Center. He and his beloved colleagues died in a conference room on the 89th floor, sharing a single working cell phone, giving or leaving messages of love to those they were leaving.
A retired educator and semi-retired writer and editor at the time of Stephen’s death, Anne learned of Sept 11th Families for Peaceful Tomorrows shortly before the invasion of Iraq and became an active member. She has served on the group’s steering committee, and as the Project Director. Now a resident of NYC, she continues to write and speak on behalf of Peaceful Tomorrows.
