Praise for 3CR Station Tours
Thanks to you all for taking the time to talk and share with us. You really showed a true spirit of solidarity in the time you spent with us and the candor with which you addressed your work and our questions..... It seems that you are both very professional in the technological aspects of your work, and also very connected to what is happening in the community. We were impressed with all the diverse sectors of the community that are involved and also the challenge of funding such a venture, something each of us can relate to. Barbara Bowen, National Coordinator of the Californian organisation The Organizers' Forum-West.
