JPNC Draft Statement to Whole Foods

Pasted below is a draft of the statement that the JPNC and Ad Hoc committee intend to deliver at the Whole Foods Community Forum on June 2nd.  As in previous statements made by the JPNC - JP for All believes that this statement does not accurately reflect the majority opinion in JP and that the opening and closing show a complete and utter disregard for trying to engage Whole Foods in a civil manner. If you agree please email the JPNC at …See More

We currently have 158 fans on Facebook and 87 followers on our Twitter account.  Not all are…
