Food In The 15th: A Candidates’ Forum

A collection of vegitables

Wednesday, October 03, 2018

Food is a basic human right and a major driver of California’s economy. And yet, the current food system produces low wages and hunger, and is a major contributor to climate change and other major environmental issues. Hear your future State Assembly member, Jovanka Beckles or Buffy Wicks, address these important topics at a candidate forum on food in California’s 15th Assembly District. Learn about the candidates’ perspectives on the intersectional topics that impact our work and lives, like access to healthy food, food workers’ rights, and agriculture’s impact on the environment.

Food in the 15th is a moderated forum with prepared questions from the event’s hosts, followed by moderated questions from the audience.

This event is free and open to public, but seating is limited, so reserve your ticket early: Food, Spanish translation, and childcare for kids out of diapers are available. (Select RSVP + Childcare ticket option to reserve limited childcare spaces)

Doors open @ 5:45 pm

Arrive early to get dinner and save your seat
