This Friedman Seminar features four Boston-area community leaders, telling their stories about how food justice has played a role in their lives and work: "Digging Deep: Creative Expressions on Food Justice." This seminar was held on February 24, 2016.
In the words of researcher and storyteller Dr. Brené Brown, "Stories are just data with a soul." Stories are a way to elucidate different points of view, highlight unique perspectives, and provide depth to our understanding of the world.
This week the Friedman Justice League brings you four Boston-area community leaders to tell their stories about how food justice has played a role in their lives and work. From the community gardens of Somerville to the farms of Somalian immigrants in Maine; from local school cafeterias to the largest Food Bank in New England, our guests will guide us through the many ways in which communities work to address issues of equity, justice and dignity in the food system.
