Hello again Tiziano supporters,
I am proud to say that Tiziano is (a) kicking ass and (b) taking names. Andrew's new name should be Mr. Empowerment Extraordinaire. He is on fire and nothing can bring this guy down.
As I said last time, Andrew got Tiziano connected with CNN International recently, and is looking to expand Tiziano's scope to empowering US prisoners and ex-cons to become citizen journalists. With our prisons swelling, I think it would be very compelling to hear these prisoners describe the difficulties they face when trying to readjust into society upon release, survive in jail or try to escape the revolving door that is the US prison system.
Please join us on Sunday, October 19th at Messob in Little Ethiopia at 12:00. Hopefully we can discuss different ways to bring more revenue into the Project, expand our influence and maximize our outreach initiatives. Or we can just chat and enjoy amazing Ethiopian food. Andrew and I are looking forward to meeting you!
