Review for Free Press, Florence, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I'm subscribed to several non-profit action email newsletters which keep me abreast of issues relevant to me, and FreePress is one of them.

Buster, thanks for the great review! You really "get" our work, especially the long-term nature of it. We hope that you'll be able to attend and speak up at a public hearing on media policy one of these days so that policymakers and leaders will be able to see and hear the real person behind your petition. Stay tuned! ~Sara Longsmith, FP staff
