Amy Carter Activism

Amy Carter became notable for her political activism, engaging in various forms of protest during the 1980s and early 1990s, particularly focused on influencing U.S. foreign policy towards South African apartheid and Central America.

One significant event was her participation, alongside activist Abbie Hoffman and others, in a 1986 demonstration at the University of Massachusetts Amherst protesting CIA recruitment on campus. This resulted in her arrest, but she was later acquitted of all charges in a well-publicized trial in Northampton, Massachusetts.

Attorney Leonard Weinglass, known for defending Abbie Hoffman in the Chicago Seven trial in the 1960s, employed the necessity defense. This successful argument contended that preventing the CIA from recruiting on campus was justified due to the agency’s involvement in what was perceived as criminal activity in Central America and other global hotspots, akin to trespassing in a burning building.
