The Economic Justice Committee (used interchangably with Program) works to support local cooperatives and to educate Casa residents and the wider community about current problems and potential solutions. They vende products from two local cooperatives, screen documentales, host speakers, etc. Migration is a core part of the Casa, and was a big part of its peacework in the past. The Casa works with five other organizations, some of which provide money, and some of which provide personnel (like social workers or psychiatrists) in order to host migrants and refugees. They offer these people support while they search for new work, apply for refugee status, or simply rest from what are often pretty intense life journeys.
|Awesome gorgeous ceiling busniess.|
|Linet is outraged at everything I do. Hayley is just trying to teach us things.|
|Nom fruits. Random tienda though, not the mercado.|
Now we're finally home (Jim stayed up way past his bedtime), and I keep meaning to write up my understanding of the Casa's history and mission, which is really really interesting to me from the perspectives of social justice work and Quaker spirituality and social witness, but I think I'll save that for a day when not much else happens to write about... ha. Like that's going to happen :)
Really good day today. I think I'm in my element.
Love to everybody,
