All We Need is Love...

Greetings!   ...Sounds a bit corny...but it's true.  We need more love in this world. Not just on Valentine's Day or some special occasion, but everyday. Not some mushy ~ here today ~ gone tomorrow ~ kinda love, but a love that is steadfast. This world needs a love that defies hatred, apathy, poverty and war.  A love that compels us to work and give and share "until all have plenty, and no one is left in need." A love that stands up and speaks out against all forms of violence and oppression.  A love that builds peace and requires justice.  A love that acknowledges and celebrates all of creation. A Just Harvest strives to share this kind of love daily in our little corner of the world. It is at the core of who we are and our work is born of this love.  We don't claim to have all of the answers or to be perfect or exceptional.  But, our commitment is purposefully reignited out of perfect love as we embark on new ways of being, doing and reaching our mission. Please know that we are grateful for your part in helping us express this love. It is your love that sustains us. From my heart to yours, Rev. Marilyn Pagán-Banks Executive Director  Keith (left) has been a resident of the Rogers Park community for over 20 years and is a proud parent of five.  He comes to this work with great love for his children and his neighborhood, and in "looking for better change within the community," Keith knows that this will only come when those with the most at stake work to make it happen. Joining the A Just Harvest team in January, Keith and Herf have hit the ground running! They helped to organize our MLK event ~ resulting in four elected officials, several community partners and over 200 people filling the gym at Willye B. White Park on a Sunday afternoon and committing to unapologetically address poverty, racism and violence.They joined leaders in visits with legislators to talk about the importance of supporting child care services and reducing gun violence.This month, Keith and Herf are organizing on getting "Souls to the Polls" ~ making sure people are getting out and casting their vote in the upcoming municipal elections.
