Share Article

Members of Fulton County's Interfaith Health Coalition gave standing ovations to Center for Family Farm Development's George Harris as he shared the Pigford III Campaign vision. His passion is drawing support from sources as diverse as the Seventh-day Adventist Church, Sidney Wood and New Covenant Communications, LLC and radio personality, Jamie Dukes', network of professional sports associates.

George Harris invites Fulton County Health Summit participants in Atlanta to support the Pigford III petition.

Fulton County Health Summit participants in Atlanta listen to George Harris' vision for Pigford III.

“Here it is”, Harris said, pointing to his Fulton County map, “Ellen White promised a ‘better way’ in the South, and here it is.”

After meeting Alvin Kibble, VP/North American Division, Seventh-day Adventist Church, April, 11, 2013, Harris reported sponsoring Adventist interest for the Pigford III Executive Order campaign to end food deserts by developing corner store markets for Black farm grown produce. During his April 18 remarks, 150 members attending the Fulton County Interfaith Health Coalition rose to give Harris two thunderous standing ovations.

To the Summit Members he said, my “citizenship passion” is dedicated to petitioning President Obama for executive order privatization of injunctive relief provisions of the Pigford vs. Glickman consent decree, April 14, 1999, Civil Action No. 97-1978. The production loans resulting from the campaign will empower Black farmers to grow fresh produce for food desert markets, challenging the epidemic of diet related health issues that plague food desert residents.

Summit Leaders, Mary Wilson and Lee Lambert, immediately set up radio interviews for Harris at WAOK AM/1380, which have generated mentorship for the “Pigford lll” petition campaign at New Covenant Communications, LLC, and Sidney Woods. And, Jamie Dukes Show, after just 5 minutes of Harris’ “Pigford lll” Petition presentation has engaged professional sports associates in support of our 100,000 petitioners’ mission.

By appointing Orlan Johnson its new Director/North American Division/Public Affairs and Religious Liberty, the Seventh-day Adventist Church has created its organizational liaison to the Obama Administration. Orlan Johnson is a man of faith, who professionally monitors regulatory transactions in financial markets, as former Chairman/Securities Investors Protection Corporation, appointed by President Obama. Arranged by Alvin Kibble, Harris and Johnson will meet Friday, May 3rd. for formal introduction of the “Pigford lll” executive order request, supported by 100,000 petitioners.
