On Saturday, March 3, 2012, 350 people packed the Haydenville Congregational Church to celebrate the life and work of National Priorities Project founder Greg Speeter. As a husband, father, brother, mentor, friend, and force-of-nature-community-organizer, Greg touched the lives of people in every corner of our nation.
During the service, led by Haydenville's Senior Pastor Andrea Ayvazian, family and friends shared the lessons they harvested from Greg's beautiful life. Over the next few weeks, NPP will post photos and videos from the memorial service taken by our good friends Jeff Napolitano and Sut Jhally.
For now, please visit the memorial page we've established in Greg's honor to view recent articles and tributes to Greg. To read Greg's words first-hand, we encourage you to purchase Dream of a Nation. It's a wonderful piece compiled by SEE Innovation.
And, the two best ways to honor Greg's remarkable life would be to dig into NPP's new website and our recently-released analysis of President Obama's fiscal year 2013 budget and stay engaged and active in your community.
Greg believed that all of us are living within an “experiment called Democracy.” He loved this country and dedicated his life to strengthening our connection with our nation's government and its federal budget.
