Her words changed the world.


"Now is the only time there ever is to do a thing in."

 Harriet Beecher Stowe inspires us each to believe in our ability to influence change. Her life demonstrates how one person can make a difference.

Harriet Beecher Stowe changed public opinion on a young nation's divisive issue - slavery.  She used her words to change the world.  Her example is as important today as it was in her time.

In keeping with Stowe's efforts, we encourage you to work for positive change.
