Shannon Galpin is a human rights activist who's lived in Summit County for the last two decades. She started the non-profit "Mountain 2 Mountain," which taught Afghan women to ride bicycles... vehicles, she says, for social justice. Many of the women Galpin worked with now fear for their lives and she's trying to help evacuate them -- from afar.
