Our global partnership

Our global partnership with the University of California Global Health Institute (UCGHI) aims to galvanize a unified force of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) to collectively address food justice through community education, outreach, and action. Discovering the intersectionality between food, health, and environmental equity is at the forefront of our decision-making and we look to our local, national, and global community members for their unique and shared experiences across these topics.
