Doors: 6:00 / Program: 6:30 – 8:15

$10 Suggested donation. Donations benefit the work of Know Your City and Groundwork Portland.

4024460457_0967d8ac91_oDuring the Civil Rights Movement, Martin Luther King Jr. worked with a huge coalition of leaders on a broad range of issues, including: voting rights, housing, and segregation. Their dreams of equality and justice for all people ties directly to the food crisis that impacts low income communities and people of color today.

Displacement and racism affects food justice in various ways, including “redlining” by banks and retail outlets, the outmigration of jobs, and food deserts. This lack of access to healthy food appears to be tied into the overall health of our nation as well—a 2010 report by the White House Task Force on Childhood Obesity found that children are on track to have a shorter lifespan than their parents for the first time in 200 years. Access to affordable, healthy food is central to our public health crisis, and this issue is clearly exacerbated by racism and class discrimination.

On Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Know Your City and People’s Food Co-op are hosting a community dialogue with speakers who organize for food justice and racial justice in our local community. Topics include gentrification, displacement, culturally responsive food gardens, and equity in local food policy.

Speakers include:

  • Katrina Holland
    Deputy Director, Community Alliance of Tenants
  • Edward Hill
    Executive Director, Groundwork Portland
  •  Shannon Cogan
    Community Engagement Manager, Sisters of the Road
  • Shantae Johnson
    Nutrition Policy Specialist, Multnomah County Health Department
  • Nick Sauvie
    Executive Director, Rose CDC

Join us at People’s Co-op (3029 SE 21st Ave) on January 18th, 2016 from 6-8pm.
Suggested donation for attending is $10. Donations will go towards Know Your City and Groundwork Portland.

    I was wondering if you ever considered changing the layout of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
