TransAfrica Forum is launching an urgent action alert to supporters across the country, calling for a "dial-in for democracy" to MCI on behalf of TransAfrica Board Chairman Danny Glover and the right to free speech and public debate.

TransAfrica President Bill Fletcher urged that the telecommunications giant hear the message that retaining actor Danny Glover as a spokesperson demonstrates the company’s embrace of democratic values that form the bedrock principle of good corporate citizenship.

Glover, a vocal opponent of the U.S. war against Iraq, is being targeted in a right-wing media campaign demanding that MCI terminate his contract.

The popular actor and activist has been engaged by the company in a series of national television spots.

  • Danny Glover, actor and activist.
  • Bill Fletcher, President of TransAfrica.
