Episode Description:

From March 23 to 26, over 750 people of faith from over 40 different religions and faith organizations gathered at the Double Tree Crystal City Hotel in the Washington DC area to lobby our Federal Government to create a fair and just budget. Keynote Speaker, Representative Emmanuel Cleaver of Kansas City, Missouri called it a moral document. There were many workshops regarding eco-justice, Latin America, Africa, Asia, and domestic solutions to problems of equity and justice. There were two from Maine who visited with Maine's Represenatives, Senators and staff on Monday. Leslie Manning, Vice President of the Maine Council of Churches and myself spent time trying to convince them of converting Bath Iron Works to buiding trains, wind mills and other peaceful infrastructure instead of war ships. Twice as many jobs could be created at half the cost to taxpayers. We spoke also of supporting programs to address domestic violence and fair treatment of immigrants, necessary to our agricultural community. You will also hear from residents of the Dorothy Day Catholic Worker House, where I stayed while in Washington D.C.
