Join us on April 18th at 2p.m. CST for the second session of the Plate to Politic women’s leadership webinar series. Our topic this month is Alliances.
Presenters will include special guests Karen Washington and Pakou Hang.
Karen Washington, an urban farmer and leading force behind community revitalization in NYC’s Bronx neighborhoods, will talk about her passion for bridging the urban-rural divide. She will share some of her personal story, and then offer strategies for creating vibrant regional local food systems that combine the strengths of urban and rural farmers.
Pakou Hang, the Executive Director of the Hmong American Farmers Association (HAFA), will outline tips for collaborating with allies and building coalitions with unlikely partners to work towards a common goal.
Register for the second session here. Registration is free, and open to all women with an idea or a passion for leadership in sustainable food and agriculture.
