Keynote Speakers and Panels

Workshops & Career Building

Workshops and Panel Discussions

Our workshops and speaker-led panel discussions will explore the complex relationship between food justice, poverty, and gun violence in many communities. Food insecurity, or lack of access to healthy and affordable food, is often more prevalent in low-income areas, which can contribute to poor health outcomes and increase the risk of violence. Additionally, poverty and gun violence can create a cycle of trauma and instability that further perpetuates food insecurity. Addressing these interconnected issues requires a multifaceted approach that includes community-based solutions, policy changes, and addressing systemic inequalities.
