Last night’s 2nd Women of Color Convening laid the foundation for important dialogue about food justice. The community members present shared their keen insights into the current food system’s role in denying people of color equal access to healthy foods, hence, promoting under-nutrition and disease in their communities. Facilitator, Lila Cabbil, president emeritus, Rosa Parks Institute, guided the dialogue. These kinds of conversations are evidence that change is not merely coming, it is already here.
” I really enjoyed the OKT’s Women of Color /Food Justice event last night. I am excited about all that I learned and I’m anxious to attend more events. I am still sharing the information I learned.” Gloria, attendee
