Youth Food Justice Summit: Community Unity
November 11, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm
This year the YFJN will host youth-led summit on November 11th at May Day Space from 9 AM – 3 PM. The themed for this summit is Community Unity. At our last CRAFT Day at New Settlement Apartments, a collective youth group, of 25 young adults, were able to brainstorm and create a summit theme that reflects the current climate in which we are facing a community. The one that was most felt by everyone is Community Unity.
Community Unity is building relationships within the community through various ways that can be seen. That can assist community gardeners, providing access to healthy food, making communal meals together, sharing self-care routines and building sustainable relationships intentionally. This form of people power enhance community resilience and self preservation.
This summit is free of cost for everyone! The YFJN is committed to create spaces for youth leaders to facilitate peer-to-peer youth exchanges such as: share their skills with their peers, bonding through various activities, and developing their skills by working together. We are currently seeking youth-led organization/groups/ school clubs to join us for this summit. You can either attend as a participant or conduct a workshop.
