September 2010 Backyard Heroes

Craig MyrboCraig Myrbo, Interfaith Coalition for Worker Justice

Craig has been part of the Interfaith Coalition for Worker Justice since the group’s first meeting in 1999. He worked on many of their campaigns-those for a living wage, for Madison’s sick leave, and helping lead an anti-sweatshop campaign.  As part of the Wisconsin United Methodist Hunger Task Force, Craig has also organized his church’s food program at a homeless shelter. Craig’s commitment makes him a true community hero.

Hildegard Dorrer’s dedication to peace and justice issues led naturally to her involvement with the Wisconsin Network for Peace and Justice (WNPJ).  For 10 years she has been the newsletter editor for the WNPJ newsletter, which flourished under her direction.  WNPJ recognizes her as she retires from her volunteer editor position, and they thank her immensely for being a strong voice on behalf of peace and justice issues.
