Earlier this month, Norman and Lyn Lear hosted a celebration of the organization’s 30th anniversary with a party in New York City. And what a celebration it was!
Board members, supporters, friends and staff came together to toast three decades of defending the Constitutional values that are at the core of our nation.
Board member Alec Baldwin spoke about his involvement with the organization and why producing accurate information about the far Right is so important.
Norman Lear talked about why he founded the organization 30 years ago, and why our work remains relevant today.
And former President Bill Clinton stopped by to talk about the state of the country, the role of government and the time he almost became President of People For the American Way. (He decided to run again for governor of Arkansas. That seems to have worked out well…)
