Daniel Moses

My beloved husband, Daniel Moses, a member of the Elders Caucus, died peacefully in his sleep in our home in Ojai, CA, on 12 September. The cause was three lung conditions caused by end-stage ankylosing spondylitis. He was 85. Danny was editor-in-chief of Sierra Club Books for several decades. He was active in the GP of California since I convened its first meeting, in December 1984, where we met. In 1987 when the spiritual dimension of Green Politics was surprisingly under attack by a group at the first national gathering of the US Greens, in Amherst in 1987, he gave a speech that received a roaring ovation. He was widely recognized as a Great Soul. Continue reading
