Potluck and Politics

They’re Everywhere! They’re Everywhere!

You can’t check social media, turn on the TV, or pick up the newspaper without seeing or hearing presidential candidates pushing their agenda.

At AFSC we think we’ve heard enough from the candidates.

It’s time for the candidates to hear us.

"Hey Senator…, Hey Governor…, what are you going to do to get the prison-industry out of the business of making immigration policy?"

"Hey Secretary…, Hey Dr.…, Do you support the use of for-profit prisons?"
