A Tribute to Dorli Rainey

Courage & Grace Under Fire

"People say to me, “Are you crazy? Why don’t you just retire?” I can’t. I have to keep on going because there’s so much work to be done. I just don’t feel like sitting at home and letting the world fall apart."
Dorli Rainey Portrait

Dorli Rainey: Elder With a Cause

Seattle’s poster child for pepper-spray abuse shares her 2012 to-do list.

Three weeks after that far-reaching photo op, Rainey answered the phone to talk freely about Occupy, real news sources and America’s need for backbone in 2012.

Dorli Rainey: I still have a bad voice, and I hope that doesn’t interfere with what you want to do. My throat and my voice don’t do what they should do.

TakePart: This is still from the pepper spray?

Dorli Rainey: Yes.

TakePart: That’s nasty.

Dorli Rainey: I know it is.
