Town hall discussion on food access and transit on Dec. 15
COVID-19 has added to the challenges many people face in their day-to-day lives. A lack of access to food is one of those problems that has grown for many people because the of pandemic.
On Tuesday, December 15, from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., we will be exploring this topic through an online discussion with local elected officials and community leaders. We also will be sharing results of our recent food access and public transportation survey.
Join Active Trans for a conversation hosted and moderated by Active Trans Bus Organizing Fellow Rylen Clark. Guests will include:
- State Senator Mattie Hunter of the 3rd District
- State Representative Delia Ramirez of the 4th District
- Jan Deckenbach, Director of the Hyde Park Kenwood Food Pantry
- Ruth Rosas, Community Programs Coordinator at CLOCC
- Cosmos Ray, member of Bronzeville Kenwood Mutual Aid
Please join our town hall conversation on food security, COVID-19’s impact on transit and food access, and our survey results from our food access survey. The goal for this town hall is to bridge the gap between different service providers for residents in Black and Brown communities through the Chicagoland area.
