Your Rio Texas MFSA Chapter volunteers were very active during the inaugural Rio Texas Annual Conference in Corpus Christi. We again worked with the Rio Texas Reconciling Ministries Team to establish a hub of conversation and information. There was a book fair, where your donated books were offered in exchange for contributions. There were exhibits and information on our MFSA chapter and our partner organizations, Texas Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty and the Austin Regional JFON (Justice for our Neighbors). And, we gave away pens, bookmarks, pins, candy, and bumper stickers!
Many of our MFSA chapter members and supporters were delegates, and we had at least 20 other volunteers who contributed their time and travel expenses to be a part of this powerful witness. Thanks to all who helped with this effort!
Our space in the vendor hall provided information about MFSA and other social justice organizations. The book fair offered conference attendees an opportunity to browse for their favorite authors and subjects, or to find something new and interesting to read.
