How does this organization make a difference?

Overview

Self-reported by organization

We continued airing "Words of Peace" on Comcast/Flint ch. 17 every Tuesday night @ 10:30.  This effort equaled 26 - 1/2 hour episodes of "Words of Peace".  Our library has grown to the point of adding Charter/Saginaw as an add-on audience in 2014. We have maintained the web site "knowyourselfinc.org" that registers about 125 hits a week. This year we will introduce ourselves to the local foundations as an applicant for grants.
