Diane Sare is an independent candidate for US Senate in New York, a trained musician, and a political organizer who has been involved with Lyndon LaRouche for 33 years. Growing up in a Quaker family, she became interested in social issues, justice, and anti-war causes. Diane experienced firsthand the challenges faced by independent candidates when the signature requirements were tripled for her Senate campaign. She believes that empathy is lacking in today’s society and that music, particularly classical music, can educate emotions and help develop compassion. Diane emphasizes the importance of living life to create better conditions for future generations and honoring the legacies of past generations through our actions.
