American Irish Newsletter, 1992-2002
The Newsletter was the publication of the American Irish Political Education Committee, a grassroots activist organization that worked through the American democratic process to influence US policy with regard to Ireland. I worked full-time with the PEC after I completed my MA until I moved on to work as a newspaper writer closer to home. This volunteer group worked tirelessly--and effectively--to address negative stereotypes about the American Irish, to inform members about the contributions of Irish immigrants to the development of this nation, and to influence elected officials to take informed, ethical positions when it was time to act on American-Irish political issues.
