Human Rights Activism
Passionate about life rights, gay rights, animal rights, and human rights, Temple has created the following movements to both educate and advocate for the voiceless: Global Peace Workers; Life Rights; and The SOFI Project that rescues and rehabilitates dogs and cats.
Temple is the recipient of many awards including the following: Nominated as an all American and elected to the National Softball Hall of Fame (1979); elected to Outstanding Young Women of America (1988); International Who’s Who of American Professionals (1997); National Association of Professional Women (2008); the People of Distinction Humanitarian Awards (2016); awarded an Honorary Doctorate Degree of Humane Letters (2019). Temple herself knows what it feels like to feel disconnected, unloved, addicted, and rejected.

Her life and teachings are an example for others to live a full and healthy life and to wake up and stop dying every day. She sees daily in her work as a spiritual leader a huge need to help all people, animals, and most especially young people find acceptance in the world and within themselves.
