Cherry Tomatoes, Parmesan Cheese, Olive Oil and Justice for Farm Workers

There are many ways to act and spread the word about social justice. You can write a letter to the editor, visit your member of Congress or launch an education or boycott campaign.  Or  you can be more creative and use the visual and performing arts to present your message.

How about the culinary arts?  This is exactly what the International Justice Mission is doing with its Recipe for Change campaign.  Each week, the campaign will feature a tomato recipe from a leader in the movement to end slavery, both here in the United States and around the world.  Read What's in an Overfilled Tomato Bucket? 45 cents By Seth Wispelwey

You can sign up to get these recipes,, along with information and stories on slavery in Florida's tomato fields and ways you can take action this summer. You'll receive one email per week between July 4th and Labor Day.

The featured recipe for July 16 comes from Ali Ebright, a food blogger, worship leader and music teacher from Kansas City.  She shares a recipe for Pasta with Slow-Roasted Tomatoes, Garlic & Parmesan  Click here to see recipe
