The event was organized by the Faith, Economy, Ecology, Transformation coalition in front of the U.S. State Department in Washington DC. Present were CCAO staff and the five summer interns who listened to speakers and joined protesters the commodity form of the global food system. This direct action was a small spark for those in government to consider the marginalized in their political decisions.
