Press and Announcements for Puffin Foundation West
BRAVO TO OUR PUFFIN WEST FRIENDS VADIM GLUZMAN AND ANGELA YOFFE who shared their celebrity, passion, and love of music in their performace with the International Center on Deafness and the Arts earlier this year.
PUFFIN WEST LOVES COLUMBUS! Almost two hundred neighbors came to the First Unitarian Universalist Church on Saturday, 15SEPT12 and sat uplifted and enveloped during the 90 minute discourse delivered by independent journalist Amy Goodman.
Amy Goodman, a truth sayer, is a heroine of our times who speaks truth to power. She is known to run into the fray, not back away! Everyday we see and hear people of and with power who are so afraid of the truth that they obfuscate it; and many of those who control our media make certain that it is not easily found. Democracy Now! is broadcast here in Columbus on WCRS at 98.3 and 102.1 as well as 1000 other radio stations including Pacifica, NPR, community, and college radio stations; on public access, PBS, satellite television (DISH network: Free Speech TV ch. 9415 and Link TV ch. 9410; DIRECTV: Free Speech TV ch. 348 and Link TV ch. 375); and on the internet. DN!’s podcast is one of the most popular on the web.
Democracy Now!’s War and Peace Report provides ordinary people with access to people and perspectives rarely heard in the U.S.corporate-sponsored media, including independent and international journalists,from around the world who are directly affected by U.S. foreign policy, grassroots leaders and peace activists, artists, academics and independent analysts. In addition, Democracy Now! hosts real debates–debates between people who substantially disagree, such as between the White House or the Pentagon spokespeople on the one hand, and grassroots activists on the other.
PFW would sincerely like to thank our host, the First Unitarian Universal Church and Michael Greenman who opened the doors widely to their sanctuary so those assembled to here Amy's words. We too, are so fortunate here in Columbus that we have friends like Simply Living and WCRS that facilitated the presentation of this important gathering and it is with Puffin West’s appreciation and admiration that they helped make this day so.
