Dear Friends, 50th year 716-332-3904; 716-931-3520 8/17/17

As you know, the WNY Peace Center is celebrating its 50th year, and our Annual Dinner will be even more special than usual. We’re exciting to announce – and confirm the leaks 😉 – that our keynote speaker will be the trail-blazing beacon of Democracy Now!,

************ AMY GOODMAN!!!! **************

Amy Goodman is the host and executive producer of Democracy Now!, a national, daily, independent, award-winning news program airing on over 1,400 public television and radio stations worldwide.

Amy has won many awards. The Nieman Foundation for Journalism at Harvard honored Goodman with the 2014 I.F. Stone Medal for Journalistic Independence Lifetime Achievement Award. She has co-authored 6 NYTimes best-sellers. The Independent of London called Amy Goodman and Democracy Now! “an inspiration,” and we do too!!

The 50th Annual Dinner will be held on Friday, Nov. 3, this year (a bit earlier than usual due to Ms. Goodman’s schedule). Doors will open at 5pm, at the Buffalo Niagara Convention Center.
