Save the Manatee Club, Inc.
November 29, 2012

Created almost forty years ago by women of South Florida who understood the necessity of changing the prevailing attitude of many Floridians and Americans generally about sea cows, he Club is an example of grass-roots organizing and fundraising to keep the science of manatees focused on protecting the animal and its surroundings. The Club sustains international research and recovery efforts to enable the shrinking populations of Trichechus manatees, or West Indian manatees from harm, further loss, or habitat destruction. As symbols of the wild shores both fresh and saltwater these manatee families are indicators of the water quality, seagrass health, and viability of our watersheds for innumerable other species.

Global Peace Film Festival, Inc.
November 28, 2012

An unimaginable but enlightening immersion in the sorrow, tenaciousness and hope that people around the world demonstrate in their offering solutions to many of the world's most pressing problems of gender inequity, injustice, and ecological damage. The festival in the word's of my esteemed colleague reveals a "zeitgeist" often ignored by commercial media and lost to the business of film distribution as it is practiced today in America. Without the festival's sensitive directors and insightful filmmakers one would never know a world exists to inspire our "better angels" to keep doing the work needed to nourish communities of an engaged, ethical, and intelligent citizenry.
