Over the last several weeks, we have been humbled by the amount of recognition we have received from the city of Austin. Two weeks ago, Amala community members gathered at City Hall to receive a proclamation from the City of Austin and City Council Member Kathy Tovo stating that August 7th-13th would be recognized as Global Youth Peace Summit Week in Austin. The Austin American Statesman featured the proclamation in the following morning’s paper. In addition to this recognition, News 8/YNN aired a beautiful piece on the Global Youth Peace Summit.
We’ve also been featured in a whole host of other media outlets including an interview on KOOP radio, a feature in TODO Magazine, Origin Magazine and Natural Awakenings as well as a piece on KUT radio which you can listen to here. It’s powerful to have our voice heard in our community and be recognized for the work we are doing in the world. Thank you so much to David Wyatt and Wyatt Brand for all the help they have given us in getting our message out to the community. We hope that that coverage we have received in the last several weeks inspires others to get involved in our amazing community.
