On Oct. 11, a number of New Mexico state senators enjoyed a harvest meal made with produce grown by farmers from AFSC’s training program. David Henkel of Santa Fe, N.M., who serves as recording clerk of AFSC’s Board of Directors, shared this account of the dinner.
The United Church of Christ New Hampshire Conference invites members of New Hampshire faith communities to join them for a Day of Advocacy at the legislature. The program will begin with worship, orientiation, and training (led by AFSC's Arnie Alpert), followed by a visit to the State House. Issues include the state budget, death penalty, taxes, predatory lending, workers' rights, and more. Bring a bag lunch or plan to purchase your lunch at the State House. "We must continue to soften 'pharaoh's' hard heart."
