Bryan Scarcella, a leader in Stand Up KC, is seeking a $15 an hour minimum wage and a union for low-paid workers. "My low pay," he said March 11 at the PeaceWorks Annual Meeting, "means not having access to health care. It means I haven't turned on the heat in my apartment for years." Both Stand Up KC and PeaceWorks are part of the Poor People's Campaign.
Inspiration and Hope for a World Without Nuclear Weapons!
During the PeaceWorks-KC Annual Meeting on March 11, participants elected the organization's officers and some members of its Board of Directors.
Jodi and Eric Garbison, founders of Cherith Brook Catholic Worker (a place of companionship and service), received PeaceWorks' Kris and Lynn Cheatum Community Peace Award at the organization's annual meeting.
Maurice Copeland, a leading voice in KC MO for persons who've suffered illnesses from contaminants at Bannister Federal Complex, where the KC Plant manufactured parts for nuclear weapons, received the Charles E. Bebb Peace Merit Award from PeaceWorks at its annual meeting.
Debora Demeter had a bright idea: a reunion among herself and some others who helped integrate KC MO Catholic schools after the 1968 assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. The resultant KCPT story (An Exchange of a Lifetime) quotes Demeter and others concerning their integration efforts.
