Adam Milstein is the Co-Founder of the Adam and Gila Family Foundation which he co-founded with his wife, Gila. The foundation offers charitable and humanitarian services to a wide range of establishments to support the Jewish people, Israel as a state and the relationship between the United States and Israel. He is as well a managing partner with Hager Pacific Properties where he oversees the finances, disposition, and management of property at the firm. Adam Milstein has been vocal on issues that affect people adversely especially those based on religion like in the case of radical Muslims who were focused on abolishing and delegitimizing Israel. He was in the forefront to condemn the actions by Radical Muslims of stoning women, killing gays, walking over on minority and human rights as well as despising feminism. With these actions, the few that are involved tarnish the whole Muslim community which is not good for that religion as a whole. Adam Milstein wonders how radical leftists allow such things to happen which fails to help identify the real Muslims and the radicals. He is as well offended by the reference of his home state, Israel as a white supremacist by some students at Tufts University. Israel as well seems to be under siege as New York University seems to share similar sentiments.
Adam Milstein on his part advocates for a good relationship between the United States and Israel and therefore does not understand where the issue of anti-Semitism hails from and why people cannot co-exist irrespective of their origin. The issue of racism and religion seems to have become rampant which is one of Adam Milstein’s concern as the radical Muslims are determined to interfere with the peace of the Jewish people’s homeland; Israel. In that case, he condemns these kinds of premeditated actions which are likely to stir conflicts among religions and people from various origins. Being a Co-Founder of the Israeli-American Council, he is best placed to advocate for peace and bring to an end such actions that deform the relationship that exists between the two states. He is a holder of a Bachelor’s of Science degree in business and economics which means he understands what some kind of actions would do to a state economically.
Doug Levitt has had two exciting careers so far in his life. and as the creator of The Greyhound Diaries, he has traveled the country collecting and sharing his works. The Greyhound Diaries uses music, stories, and photographs of Doug’s 120,000-mile journey across the United States in a Greyhound bus. He shares layovers, accidental meetings and the occasional friendship with other travelers, many of which are struggling to make ends meet.
Before he gegan the Greyhound Project, which lasted over 12 years, Levitt was a foreign correspondent based in London. He spent much of his time dispatched to various places including Iran, Bosnia, and Rwanda, and reported for many news stations.
Doug Levitt was born and grew up in Washington, DC with both a mother and father in the political arena. He attended public schools and attended Cornell University earning his bachelor degree. After receiving the Fulbright Scholarship, he attended the London School of Economics earning his Master’s degree in Nationalism and Ethnic Conflict. London was his home for over a decade.
The Greyhound Diaries are portions of the interesting, raw and uncensored lives of those traveling on the Greyhound bus route. Doug left his position as a foreign correspondent, but he never left his interest and concern for the common people. This project has taken over 12 years of Doug’s life, and he has documented it all with his artistic works of songs, writings, and photos to express struggling America. His commentaries have been in the Wall Street Journal, The Huffington Post, The Sunday Times of London, and The Christian Science Monitor to name a few.
Many people have seen the Project aired on CNN, MSNBC, and Fox News. During the weeks prior to the presidential election, Levitt completed a tour across the under-appreciated areas in 10 states to get out and vote. Levitt reflects back to when his father committed suicide when Doug was 16, as an intregal point in his artistic lifestyle, and his memior, Song from a Son, reveals those discoveries.
