Plowshares committee member, Lanny Freshman, discussed the event serving as the main fundraiser for the Syracuse Peace Council, “It represents and it supports peace and justice issues from climate related things, to workers rights to immigrant rights.” Freshman said coming to support the festival will not only be good for the community but good for you as well.
