55 West 125th Street New York, NY, 10027 United States
A new president and congress have threatened to repeal or weaken many of the accomplishments of the food justice movement won in the last two decades. In the next few years, how can the food movement here in New York City find common ground and common goals with local and national environmental and labor movements, and the movements for immigrant rights, affordable housing and health care reform? What are the specific opportunities in New York City and State for developing common agendas across these movements to resist Trump initiatives that harm health? Mark Bittman, food writer and former columnist for the New York Times will moderate a panel including: Nicholas Freudenberg, Director, CUNY Urban Food Policy Institute Amy Richards, Coordinator of the Partnership for a Healthier Queens at Make the Road Charmaine Ruddock, Project Director, Bronx Health REACH
