Join the Women, Gender, and Health Interdisciplinary Concentration on Monday, February 22, 2021 at 6 pm EST as they welcome Ali Anderson, MPH and Lyric Zhané from Feed Black Futures and Ashley Gripper, MPH from Land Based Jawns to discuss Black food and land sovereignty, community wellbeing, and collective liberation. These conversation partners will explore the role that mutual aid has played in supporting communities at the intersections of state-sanctioned violence, food apartheid, and food insecurity in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic.
