Initiatives of Change USA is partnering with Beautiful RVA, Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden and Birth in Color RVA on “Food for Thought: The Intersections of Birth & Food Justice”, a dinner and discussion with dr. taj anwar baoll. This event explores the inter-weavings of different sectors of social justice work and how multidimensional approaches are needed to undo unjust and inequitable systems.
According to Duron Chavis, urban farm activist and organizer of this event, “The work we do to cultivate communities around the right to access healthy, fresh and affordable food intersects with the need for regenerative community greenspace. Achieving racial equity requires us to consider how our work overlaps and how we can achieve multi-layered impacts that can overwhelm the multi-layered oppressions that marginalized communities experience every day.”
dr. taj anwar baoll has contributed over two decades of activism in Atlanta to creating thriving food practices and birth justice work for disenfranchised communities of color. This event intentionally takes place at a historic cultural institution in Richmond - Croaker’s Spot - where we will explore with dr. taj on how the greater Richmond region can expand our perspectives and collaborations to transform social justice practices within and across differing communities.
Please note that this event is sold out.
