Join us Saturday morning for a Breakfast Women’s Panel sponsored by Beautycounter.
In this lively keynote, national bestselling author, activist, and founder of Real Food Media, Anna Lappé, will spark conversation among three awesome women working at the intersections of food, health, and community change. We’ll hear from Breanna Hawkins who works with the Los Angeles Food Policy Council to promote greater equity in the food system and Karla Vasquez, Director of Community Programs at With Love Market & Café, who runs cooking classes, diabetes prevention, gardening instruction and more —all funded with proceeds from a community café and market. And we’ll meet Aaronica Cole, a blogger and digital strategist at The Crunchy Momma, who has built a huge following online, connecting moms with resources, advice, and community. In this invigorating conversation, on-the-ground stories and strategies will give us new ideas for how our own work — whether we’re bloggers or brand ambassadors – can promote equity. And we will leave with a new understanding of how we all have the power to lead to ensure that more of us, everywhere live in communities free of toxins and with access to good, healthy food.
