Gambling on Non-Violence: An Interview with Ralph DiGia

In 1999, I interviewed Ralph DiGia, a lifelong pacifist and war resister, who has been working with the War Resisters League for decades. Ralph was humble and down-to-earth, but steely in his commitment to nonviolent social change. He was among the group of radical pacifists and conscientious objectors who struck at Danbury Prison during the Second World War to end racial segregation at the prison. Here he is pictured, far left, at a picket of the Pentagon in 1946, along with Jim Peck and Albon Man, to protest nuclear testing in the Pacific.
