*Other Local Events*
*Social Justice Bowl*
Date: 10/22/2010 - 6:00pm
Location: Westminster Presbyterian Church, 190 Rugby Road
Sponsor: Virginia Organizing Project
Please help honor local fighters for social justice and enjoy a soup and
bread supper and a fun evening. Then take your handcrafted bowl, donated by
a local potter home with you.
Your support helps to raise the voices of those who need jobs (and more) and
to train hundreds of individuals to become leaders for change.
Additionally, we like our event to be community building and to let
individuals who want to come but cannot afford to do so, get the chance to
come. If anyone would like to sponsor these individuals (each sponsorship is
$25) this would be most welcome, too.
Please send checks to Virginia Organizing, 703 Concord Avenue,
Charlottesville, VA 22903 or call Sally at 984-4655 x229 (bastian at ntelos.net).
Thanks! Tickets can also be purchased at Timberlakes Drug Store, Quest
Bookshop and The Batesville Store. Tickets will not be sold at the door to
ensure everyone gets a beautiful bowl.
*Rally for a Living Wage at the University of Virginia!*
Date: 10/25/2010 - 7:00pm
Location: Newcomb Ballroom
Sponsor: Workers and Students United at the University of Virginia
Every human person deserves dignity and basic respect. And yet, hundreds of
men and women who are an essential part our University community are denied
this basic respect because they are not paid a decent wage. Students and
professors must confront an enormous contradiction: while the University
embraces freedom, justice, and ethics in its mission statement and in its
classrooms, the everyday administration of the University allows workers to
be paid as little as $7.50 an hour. Workers are not cheap tools. Everyone
has a right to support his or her family.
Join us for a press conference, statements from faculty, staff and
Charlottesville leaders, live music, and the release of the research
document, Keeping Our Promises. For details see the Living Wage
