Community Alliance Inspires Activist


As I read the articles in Fresno’s Community Alliance newspaper, I must stop and take a minute to truly talk about what I feel.

The coverage of the breadth of political activism in Fresno is inspiring. The articles and pictures breathe a sense of vitality into progressive politics stories that I have rarely or ever seen anyplace. The paper does not flag wave; it credits the subjects and personalities in the articles with courage and importance.

The coverage is thorough and encouraging to the reader to get involved.The Alliance is a virtual engine for getting the reader to feel there is a place to join the march, sign the petition, send the check, cast the vote.

As a four-time book-published author on theater and politics, and dozens of articles, plays and short stories, I will say unequivocally that the story on the history of Fresno cop corruption is, in my opinion, Pulitzer material.
