A Message to Congress on a Whiteboard

There were more than 1,000 participants, 50 speakers and some two dozen musicians at the first annual Wild Goose West Festival in Corvallis, OR, over the Labor Day Weekend.

There was also an opportunity for organizations, including Bread for the World, to set up booths. Regional organizer Matt-Newell Ching  and  Bread volunteers (like Sharon Thornberry, Mike Hiland, Lyle Anderson and others) conducted  a little experiment.  Using a whiteboard and erasable markers, they asked folks who stopped by the Bread booth to answer the following question:

“Who do you want Congress to remember when they consider budget cuts to programs that affect low-income people?” 

The responses, which were recorded in photographs, can be viewed here.
