Election 2012

Meet Phil Donahue and Norman Solomon

It’s important that progressives get an early start in 2012, a year where we have an opportunity to make a real impact in November.

Kick off the year by joining Peace Action West-endorsed candidate Norman Solomon in a series of events with television pioneer Phil Donahue. 

Donahue, a winner of 20 daytime Emmy awards, has long been an active voice in support of progressive causes, even losing his MSNBC program over his principled questioning of the rush to war in Iraq. He and Ellen Spiro produced and directed the intimate and moving documentary “Body of War,” following an Iraq veteran’s recovery process after he is paralyzed from a bullet in his spine.

Please join Norman and Phil for one of these events coming up this week:
