The Crescent Moon Media Group

     "We are called to play the Good Samaritan on life's roadside, but that will be only an initial act.  One day the whole Jericho road must be transformed so that men and women will not be beaten and robbed as they make their journey through life.  True compassion is more than flinging a coin to a beggar; it understands an edifice that produces beggars needs restructuring."

     The Crescent Moon Media Group was established in 2012 through the encouragement and generous financial support of individuals interested in and committed to the creation of a print and electronic media effort designed to raise awareness and provide education and solutions on critical global issues related to hunger, poverty, racial/ethnic intolerance and the stigma associated with certain terminal and non-terminal diseases. Working in tandem with such organizations as The Southern Poverty Law Center, The Holocaust History Project, The Hunger Project, One.org and Mercy Corps, The Crescent Moon Media Group will facilitate the production of books, video and film documentaries that will focus on the cause, history and perpetuity of these issues.
