FSTV to deliver a compilation of Brave New Foundation’s breakthrough investigative videos from
Cuentame, Koch Brothers Exposed and Rethink Afghanistan
September 26, 2011 (Denver, CO) – For the last seven years, Brave New Foundation (www.bravenewfoundation.org) has championed social justice issues via online media, short-form documentaries, education, and grassroots volunteer involvement to inspire, empower and encourage civic participation to create social change. Free Speech TV has announced that it will broadcast the latest installments of their acclaimed series, Cuentame, Koch Brothers Exposed and Rethink Afghanistan, as a 1.5 hour-long program entitled, The ChangeMakers. The series will air to national television audiences on Dish Network and DIRECTV on Saturdays through October 15, 2011 at 8:00 PM ET.
The ChangeMakers provides an in-depth look at the latest in the Koch brothers saga, including their position on the Keystone XL and how the Obama administration’s climate ‘reform’ decisions may actually benefit these greed-fueled millionaires; sheds light on the plight of Latino immigrants in the US, via the story of a mentally impaired, lawful US resident awaiting his fate in a deportation trial; and challenges our audiences to question our role in Afghanistan, as we examine the present state of the US occupation, the exuberant costs associated with this war and President Obama’s unfulfilled promises to reduce US troops.
“We are honored to be able to partner with Brave New Foundation to bring to millions of American households this important series and inspire our viewers and members to take action in these social justice issues that are usually blacked-out by the mainstream media,” said Giselle Campagna, Development Director.
Speaking about The ChangeMakers broadcast on FSTV, Laura Beatty, Brave New Foundation V.P. Distribution said, “with our goal to inform people through compelling video stories and motivate them to take action, we are excited to partner with FSTV. This partnership enables important messages to be delivered direct to 35 million people.”
The ChangeMakers will broadcast every Saturday (September 24 – October 15) at 8:00 pm EST on Free Speech TV via DISH Network channel 9415, DIRECTV channel 348, various US cable access stations (check our website for cable access listings), and online at FREESPEECH.ORG.
