August 2nd, 2014 - Not Just Talk!
Last year on February 16th over 200 people converged on The Point CDC in the Bronx to discuss the innovative and broad work being done by revolutionary folks to change our food system. The gathering was a direct response to executive director, Tanya Fields being uninvited from TEDx Manhattan but what transpired has inspired a space for community to come together in safe spaces in which they can narrate their realities and re-envision what the world looks like. This year we will do that all over again. Join us, Saturday, August 2nd from 10am - 5pm at The Point CDC as we embark upon another summit that will explore Radical Women Building Resilient Communities.
EVEN MORE EXCITING is that this year the BLK Projek has partnered with environmental justice organization Green For All to clearly illustrate the ways in which we can work together on a national level to create an inclusive Green Collar Economy. Working with Green For All will help us continue to explore ways in which we can work together on the national level in a strategic and effective way And we will be hosting Mom Rising's, Food Power Brunch where we will discuss the state of school food and how to change it, as well as honoring fierce women who do the work necessary to make it a reality.
This year's summit is FREE but registration is REQUIRED. Register now and check out our Radical Women TanyaTalk Speakers. Be sure to visit often as we update our list.

The BLK Projek is a women of color led organization that harnesses the power of the local, good food movement to create and catalyze economic development for low income women and youth. Through our innovative and community led programming we seek to make more healthy, whole communities that will lead, shape and benefit from a more accessible food system.
In our short time, we are extremely proud of the inroads we have been able to make with the generous support of foundations like Jesse Noyes, Claneil and Simon Bolivar and mostly from individual donors like you!
In order for us to continue to do this work, grow, expand and stay accountable, help from folks like you is absolutely necessary. So whether it is a single dollar or one hundred dollars with your support we can continue to create programming that empowers residents, creates better choices for a healthier environment and catalyzes economic development.
