The written word isn't dead yet
Compared with the latest viral video, anything printed might seem a trifle passé. However, we're firm believers that the written word — both on and off screen — can still deliver a powerful punch.

“By its nature, peace is something that brings a lot of joy. It’s beautiful. And it is something that we need. It’s not a concept, it’s not an idea, it’s not a luxury. This is a necessity.

My name is Rene Chapa. In 2009 I was sentenced to the Dominguez State Jail for one year. Before then, my life had become chaotic and unmanageable. I wanted answers. I wanted to know why my life had been the way it was.

Herders and agricultural workers in Ethiopia's Dollo Bay and Dollo Ado areas, near the epicenter of the worst drought to afflict the Horn of Africa in 60 years, are getting relief in the form of clean, safe water through a partnership between TPRF and International Relief and Development (IRD), an Arlington, VA-based nonprofit known for its rapid response to international humanitarian crises. TPRF approved a $25,000 grant to IRD to help provide emergency relief to about 24,000 people.
