A One-Woman Picket Line

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/community_briefs/article/a_onewoman_picket_line_20031219

The photo shows an African American woman on the picket line with striking supermarket workers, a portable microphone in one hand and the other holding a placard proclaiming in large letters, "Jewish Labor Committee." The woman is Cookie Lommel, and she is the new executive director of the Jewish Labor Committee's (JLC) Western region. These days, Lommel can be found weekly picketing the Pavilions market in Sherman Oaks, bringing along doughnuts for the strikers.
