2011 Northeastern Food and Justice Summit

On the weekend of February 25th, 5 of us traveled to Boston to represent NY2NO at the 2011 Northeastern Food and Justice Summit! While there, we facilitated two workshops, networked with other young people from across the east coast, and even gave a speech to the whole summit!

            Ways to Make Change: Examining Effective Discourse While Fostering Youth Empowerment
                 Organizers Katelyn Montalvo and Alex Goldman facilitating Ways to Make Change.

                       Choices: How Our Everyday Choices Further the Food Justice Movement
                           Organizers Adaobi Onunkwo and Max Bowens facilitating Choices.

Organizer Katelyn Montalvo sharing her experiences with the summit! 

After traveling from New Orleans to Boston, back to New York, we made a lot of potential partnerships, and plan to start working with several organizations based in New York with GYO!
