In July, the "Nuns on the Bus" let loose again, starting in Wisconsin in mid-July, and hitting towns and cities—and congressional offices—in the northeast, on the way to both the Republican and Democratic conventions to challenge public officials and candidates to "Mend the Gaps" in Wealth and Income Inequality.
Network Lobby, the year-round home of the Nuns, is a long-time customer of Equal Exchange, and we proudly donated the coffee, tea and chocolate for the trip.
Peter Buck, from Equal Exchange, spoke at their July 23rd rally in Boston. See a video of his speech from the rally.

In 24 cities, the Nuns held rallies and workshops, and attendees signed on to Mend the Gaps in Income and Wealth.
