Poster with description of event and relevant details

Join the Women, Gender, and Health Interdisciplinary Concentration 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.

Feed Black Futures is a mutual aid organization serving Black mamas and caregivers impacted by parole, probation, and/or caring for incarcerated loved ones in Los Angeles. Land Based Jawns is a spiritually rooted, skill-building project helping Black Philly jawns to reconnect and deepen relationships with the earth.

This event will be held on Zoom. To RSVP, email wgh@hsph.harvard.edu.

This event is organized by Women, Gender, and Health Interdisciplinary Concentration, with co-sponsorship from the FXB Center for Health and Human Rights and the Office of Diversity and Inclusion at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.
