Many, many thanks to endorsers, speakers, attendees, and well-wishers!! Those who were there experienced a thoughtful and caring crowd, standing up courageously for principle(s). Martha McCluskey is our shero, and how grateful we are to Sara Faduski, Jim Anderson, Victoria Guite, Annie Krause, Paul McQuillen (who spoke in that order) for their eloquence and insights. Wonderful job all round!!
Great thanks also to Brandi and Lee Jensen, Peggy Matteliano, Paul Harvey, Frank Gage, for essential help and support for the event, and our dear Riverside Salem UCC/DC who has a long history of courage and activism (including the founding of the WNY Peace Center, now in our 50th year!) – we couldn’t do any of it without you all!
Many thanks to Ismail Johnson & Co, including many great musicians especially Lonnie Barlow, who uplifted us.
Also to The Buffalo News for excellent reporting by Joe Popiolkowski! His article was well-done: clear and concise and to the point. See below!
