- Who We Are
- What We Do
- Social Action
Leader Jone Johnson Lewis introduces us to some sisters who are not very well-known, but whose lives include some inspiring lessons for us.
Dr. Jakob Joseph Goldmark and Regina Wehle came to America after the failure of the Austrian Revolution of 1848. Among their children were four daughters who each made a mark on society:
Josephine and Pauline were also key in developing the so-called Brandeis brief for their brother-in-law, used in the landmark Supreme Court decision Muller v. Oregon. (A brother, Henry C. Goldmark, was the engineer who designed the locks for the Panama Canal.)
Come hear more about these sisters and consider how their interconnections with many others helped to create some key social reforms in American history.
