Video Title:
Stories For Change - Food Justice Edition - Episode II - Becoming a Farmacist
Description:
Wednesday, September 15 | 6:30 – 7:30pm Stories for Change: Food Justice Edition (A Virtual 3-episode Series) Change the story, change the world. Seven community members took a leap and accepted our invitation to learn the craft of storytelling and to tell their truths on stage. Through their eyes we will look at a side of our food system we rarely see -- the struggles and triumphs of everyday people trying to eat healthily, grow sustainably, and cook with passion in Greater Washington DC. Coached and directed by a Grand Slam Champion of the Moth DC, Phill Branch, these stories are sure to entertain as much as they challenge the status quo. Individual performances were recorded and will be featured in a series of three virtual programs as well as a professionally produced podcast. Continuing our ground-breaking storytelling series, this episode features two people who discovered the true value of healthy, un-processed food and then made their passion into a career – Geo Edwards and Naijha Wright-Brown. We’ll watch their heartfelt performances, interview each of the tellers to get a behind-the-scenes look at the process of story crafting, and to learn a bit more about their perspective on eating and activism in Greater Washington. Supported by The United Food and Commercial Workers International Union (UFCW)
