From the PC(USA) Campaign for Fair Food:
Announcing the day of God’s favor, the gospel of Luke tells us Jesus inaugurated his ministry by reading from the scroll of Isaiah, proclaiming release to the captives. As followers of Jesus we continue to proclaim this good news.
The Coalition of Immokalee Workers will be holding a “Farmworker Freedom March” from Tampa to Lakeland, Florida, April 16-18, 2010, calling for freedom from forced labor; freedom from abuse; freedom from poverty and degradation. In lead-up to the Freedom March, a Mobile
“Modern-Day Slavery Museum” will tour Florida.
Presbyterians from across Florida and across the nation are invited to participate in the Freedom March and to prepare for this peaceful witness through prayer, education and advocacy. Resources will be available soon on www.pcusa.org/fairfood. For now, please save the date and pray for this witness.
Further information on the march and museum is available at www.ciw-online.org.
