Join us for a Food Justice Webinar Thursday March 15 at 1:00pm ET

Last week, I was fortunate to have been invited to fast for six days with farmworkers seeking a decent wage and livable working conditions. It is a scandal that the very workers who pick 80 percent of the tomatoes consumed in the United States often have difficulty feeding their own families.

Please join World Council of Churches North American president Rev. Bernice Powell Jackson and me, along with Fast for Fair Food organizers Rev. Noelle Damico of the Presbyterian Hunger Program and Gerardo Silva of the Coalition of Immokalee Workers, for an opportunity to interact live and for free on a webinar.

“From Harvest to Home: Farmworkers, Food Justice, and Hunger.”

March 15th – Thursday afternoon – 1:00pm EST

We’ll share information about the fast and ways you can get involved in next steps during the first half hour, then open up the second half hour to answer your questions.

Please register early, as space is limited. Members of the press are welcome for this webinar. Please spread the word.

I look forward to seeing you online!

Grace and Peace,

Michael Livingston

Director, National Council of Churches Poverty Initiative
