Prism's volunteers were proud to have served the Raleigh/ Durham/ Chapel
Hill, NC area with alternative news and views for 10 years.
April of 1990 until August of 2000, the paper was printed monthly per year
and distributed for free throughout the Triangle. All labor was volunteered
and all costs are paid by donations and advertisements.
Here are a few stories from people
who have done it and lived to tell the story.
Prism has a lot of friends
a little bit helps us out a lot

On October 14-15,
2000, SURGE (Students United for a Responsible Global Economy) held a conference
on issues and on training people to become active to pursue the issues
of social justice in which they believe.
Jeff Saviano talked to two
conference organizers and four attendees who gave a general idea of what
was going on at the conference and what was hoped to come from it.
(Clip #1 has the interview with two of the conference organizers and one
attendee; Clip #2 has the remaining attendees.)
On Saturday SURGE hosted
a discussion panel of leaders of North Carolina activism.
In this clip, Dan
Coleman (worked much with the Orange County, NC Greens and many
other groups) discusses how to draw connections between optimism of the
spirit and the intellect, between different activist groups, and between
the campus and the community.
We hope to make portions
of the other panelists' discussions online as well, as soon as time allows
and given some very odd technical difficulties with the equipment recording

Century Project, "a series of nude photographs accompanied by highly
personal and moving statements by women whose lives span 100 years. The
words and pictures combine to form a powerful statement about body image,
society's portrayal of women in the media, sexuality, pornography, and
women's health issues," according to photographer Frank Cordelle.
