Exciting Leadership Changes at Global Action Project

Global Action Project (G.A.P.) is pleased to announce that after months of planning we have launched a new Co-Director structure on March 1, 2013, ushering in a dynamic phase of organizational and programmatic growth and shared leadership.  This has been a long-held aspiration for us and with direction from the board, staff, and young people, we believe this is a powerful step forward in G.A.P.’s capacity to support youth media and social justice.

A Heartfelt Goodbye to George Stoney

George Stoney -- 1916-2012

 

 

George Stoney, one of Global Action Project's biggest fans and allies, and my personal friend and mentor, passed away on July 12 in his apartment in the West Village. He had just turned 96.
