Carolyn Goodman

Dr. Carolyn Goodman was a clinical psychologist who became a prominent civil rights advocate after her son, Andrew Goodman and two other civil rights workers, James Chaney and Michael Schwerner, were murdered by the Ku Klux Klan in Neshoba County, Mississippi, in 1964. To carry on the spirit and purpose of her son Andrew's life, Carolyn and her husband Robert created The Andrew Goodman Foundation in 1966. Today, the foundation partners with America's colleges and universities through its Vote Everywhere program, which provides student leaders with a platform to register and mobilize voters, organize campuses, and collaborate with their peers.
