2012 Thunder & Lightning Awards Celebration

Dr. Brenda Williams and her husband, Joseph, have run a family medical practice in Sumter for nearly 30 years, where they have long been dedicated to promoting civil rights. Dr. Williams gathered scores of affidavits from area residents whose voting rights were threatened by the law. She was also featured in local, state and national news pieces about her work on the ID law.


Dave Lippman

Dave Lippman will provide the evening’s entertainment. A satirical troubadour with an international reputation, Dave afflicts the complacent, takes the air out of windbags, and updates worn-out songs with brand-new parody. His alter-ego, Wild Bill Bailout, is the bard of the bankers. (For a taste of his work, check out this video.)

Tickets are $25 single/$40 couple. Price includes a year’s membership in the Network. Event proceeds will be used to further our work improving the quality of life and government in South Carolina.

You may pay at the door, but reservations are requested as space is limited. Call 803-808-3384 or RSVP on Facebook.

Those who profess to favor freedom and yet deprecate agitation are people who want crops without plowing the ground, rain without thunder and lightning. Power concedes nothing without demand and struggle. It never has and it never will.

    Nimrata Haley, you are not welcome in South Carolina & people’s Unions Collective Bargaining is a necessity. 9 firefighters would be alive today with standard union safety equipment & standard union work rules NOT LEGAL in SC because of your Rethuglican Party greed/bigotry against Unions. People need living wages. A legitimate Governor of SC would not take bribes to deepen the Savannah River & dump the toxic sludge in Jasper County. Resign Nimrata & live up to your name of Harmony. We honor those who defeated your illegal photo voter law. MRS Haley is not honorable in her attack on representatives of labor.
