Speaker: Judy Wicks — Activist, Entrepreneur, and Author
and Annual Holiday Party
Judy Wicks, founder of the White Dog Café in Philadelphia, will speak and read excerpts from her book, Good Morning, Beautiful Business.
Ms. Wicks provides insight and inspiration concerning the deep connections between local food, ecology, economy and social justice. Her book is a memoir about the evolution of an entrepreneur who would not only change her neighborhood but would also change her world—helping communities far and wide create local living economies that value people, nature and place more than money.
Ben Cohen, co-founder of Ben & Jerry’s, is one of many authors, visionaries and business people giving praise to Ms. Wicks’ book. He says, “Judy Wicks is one of the most amazing women I have ever met. She ran the legendary White Dog Café with passion, heart, common sense, and financial success. And she continues to blaze new paths on the road to a truly sustainable people-centered economy. This is a must-read book.”
There will be a Q&A and book signing after Ms. Wicks' talk. The event is free and there will be refreshments. Judy Wicks' book is a terrific read and would make a great holiday gift.

WOMEN'S INFORMATION NETWORK OF NEW JERSEY (WIN-NJ)
The Women's Information Network of New Jersey (WIN-NJ) was made possible through a grant from the Women's Agenda
of New Jersey. WIN-NJ provides an online database of women's organizations within the state that deal with issues of
particular relevance to women's social, political, economic, educational, and legal advancement. This project was developed
to help promote and facilitate effective communication within the women's organizational community on these issues.
The database is accessible through API's website and provides links to each
organization. It is available in three formats:
by area of subject expertise, alphabetically as a .pdf file, and
alphabetically as an Excel spreadsheet that can be sorted
by various fields. Information provided for each organization includes,
where available, the organization's name, address,
phone, fax, e-mail, website, principal contact and title, and up to three
areas of subject expertise.
