TGIF: A Strong Week for Firedoglake Activism

By: Friday June 15, 2012 4:32 pm

When you’re this deep in the trenches, everything seems like an uphill battle. Rarely, it seems, do we see justice truly served or fairness truly honored.

But (!) this past week was different. FDL activists saw some inspiring progress on a variety of campaigns, and since it’s Friday and we could all probably use a little pick-me-up, I thought I’d share our week with you.

FDL Movie Night: The Power of Two

By: Monday January 30, 2012 5:00 pm

The Power of Two, directed by Marc Smolowitz, is a powerful and evocative documentary about two extraordinary women, twins Anabel Stenzel and Isabel Stenzel Byrnes, their battle with the fatal genetic disease cystic fibrosis (CF) and their miraculous survival through double lung transplants. Their story takes us through their lives as they emerge as advocates for organ donation both in the United States and in in their mother’s native country, Japan, where they attempt to change the cultural resistance to the idea of organ donation.
