Stephen Seidel and Renegade Reporting were in attendance at a private party at Paul and Deborah Haggis' house honoring peace activists Ed Asner and Danny Glover for Office of the America's Peace and Justice Awards. The event was hosted by Mimi Kennedy and Shae Popovich and run by several volunteers such as Sharon Jimenez, Sean Moran, Lois Davis, Frank Dorrel, Theresa and Blase Bonpane, myself, and many more kind souls.
Kris Kristofferson was there to share his wonderful songs, as well as KB Solomon, and the OOA Songsters. Maxine Waters accepted on behalf of Danny Glover and shared some of her recent efforts. Ron Kovic and Oliver Stone also donated both their time and money towards the cause.
Here's a sneak peek into a few photos with the man from behind the camera, Stephen Seidel. Thanks so much to Bob Jimenez for his talented photography skills.
Please contact me if you'd like more footage from the event. Kris sang 3 songs, Ed Asner nailed his thank you speech, KB Solomon was a force, Blase Bonpane shared his wisdom and many more guests were there in support.
Blase and Theresa Bonpane, founders of OOA are stepping down from fundraising events to focus more on outreach. Any future volunteer or support can be directed towards the website: www.officeoftheamericas.org
