From our organizers:
Join NYCNEN for a conversation on food apartheid. Our discussion will include a holistic appraisal of the social and economic factors that determine the quality and access to food for communities. We will hear about the work being done by local trailblazers to eliminate hindrances to food justice. In a round-table discussion we will brainstorm practical approaches on how to empowering our own communities to achieve food sovereignty.
