Getting ready for tomorrow’s 24-hour vigil in Lakeland, Florida! This is the finale to the Coalition of Immokalee Workers’ 10-day “Now Is The Time” tour that began last week, Ash Wednesday, March 5th. I’m charging my devices so I can record & share some of the next 48 hours with everyone, and I’m packing the bare necessities for spending the night outside on a sidewalk. I keep reminding myself that this little challenge to my stamina is nothing compared to the daily poverty and abuse faced by the farmworkers of Immokalee. Looking forward to seeing everyone from the CIW & know that I’ll be packin’ jam! Homemade Treasure Coast local, organic, slave-free Strawberry jam; but that’s a mouthful. I call this latest batch “Now Is The Time” Strawberry Jam. The perfect treat for a guilt-free march/rally in pursuit of Fair Food!
And if you want to join the finale, it’s not too late. Click here for details. See you in Lakeland!
