Doug Clark, an editorial writer for the Greensboro News and Record, posted again on his blog, Off the Record.

We are troubled by how Clark went about gathering his information.

Instead of contacting anyone from the NC DREAM Team, which has contact information listed here, they contacted another Latino community organization, El Pueblo, instead.

While individual members of El Pueblo Jóvenes, a youth group associated with El Pueblo, have donated their time by checking on the strikers, as have folks from a number of other groups and organizations, we are not receiving any formal support from El Pueblo as an organization.

Neither is a doctor regularly checking on the strikers. A friend of the team whose mother is a Nurse Practitioner is graciously donating her time.

We hope that Clark chooses to get his information from the source in the future, rather than relying on incorrect second-hand information.
