This Wednesday at 9am our first guest on Peace & Justice will be Scott Osborne, President of Through Women’s Eyes. We’ll talk about the TWE Film Festival starting this Thursday and running through next Monday. There will be a screening of Four Short Films and an awards ceremony at Fogartyville, Saturday, March 11, from 1-4 p.m.
On the second half of the show we’ll talk to the Coalition of Immokalee Workers about
the Fair Food Program as well as the upcoming March For Farmworker Freedom (“Build A New World”). The March begins on 3/14 and goes for 5 days and 45 miles from Pahokee to Palm Beach. The march will celebrate the extraordinary success of the Fair Food Program, and to demand holdouts Wendy’s, Publix, and Kroger finally join the Fair Food Program.
