March to CONGRESS for CARPER! Wear WHITE, March with Us. APRIL 20, 2009.

On April 20, 2009, Let's make history as we bring our fight for justice to the congress.

On the 20th, the congress will be discussing the CARPer Bill, among other issues, and with that, we are inviting you to show your solidarity with the farmers by being there. As we listen to the proceedings, your choice to be there among the other volunteers will pressure the congress to put importance to the CARPer Bill.

Did you know that 80% of privately-owned land still remains undistributed. If distributed, this amount of land will provide for 400,000 farmer families.

So, the choice is yours. Will you be a HERO for 400,000 families? Let's unite as one people and fight for our brothers and sisters in need.

The moment you choose to participate, you have made a choice against apathy, poverty, injustice, and death.
