CBL Event April 8th – Red Emma’s

Another World Is Possible and Necessary:
Working for Justice, Responding to Poverty in Nicaragua

Tuesday April 8 @ Red Emma’s (30 W. North Avenue, Baltimore 21201)
6:30 PM Informal Spanish language practice group and Nicaraguan Arts & Crafts sale, 7:30 PM Speaker: Sarah Junkin Woodard

Sarah Junkin Woodard comes to us from the Center for Development in Central America (CDCA), the Nicaraguan project of the non-profit, faith-based organization, the Jubilee House Community (JHC). Working in Nicaragua for the past two decades, the CDCA continues to adapt, seeking to respond to human needs created by poverty in the second poorest nation in the western hemisphere.

The CDCA focuses on justice now, working towards freedom from poverty, helping communities become self-sufficient, sustainable, democratic entities, specifically in the areas of: sustainable economic development, organic agriculture, appropriate technology, education and health care. Sarah says, “The CDCA has been called to work with, and speak on behalf of, the poor in our area of Nicaragua, and to share their lives and stories with folk in the U.S., to bridge the gap between us and our neighbors.”

This evening of speakers, art and Spanish language practice is organized in partnership with Casa Baltimore/ Limay, which has worked in Nicaragua for over 28 years.

Come to Red Emma’s on Tuesday April 8th to learn how to work together for alternatives to corporate globalization, such as sustainable development and fair trade and how to promote greater understanding of Nicaragua by providing accurate, first-hand information about its current events and economic and political conditions, to the people in Baltimore and beyond.

There will be an informal Spanish language practice “charla” or “chat” in the Free School classroom at Red Emma’s from 6:30 – 7:30 for Spanish language practitioners of ALL LEVELS to practice their Spanish.

There will also be a variety of Nicaraguan arts and crafts for sale including paintings by Nicaraguan artists, unique pottery, household items, fair-trade Nicaraguan coffee, beautiful note cards, and other examples of Nica artisanry. Tax-deductible donations & proceeds from craft sales go to projects sponsored by Casa Baltimore/ Limay and the Center for Development Central American – Jubilee House Community
