Please join the Hunger and Environmental Nutrition Dietetic Practice Group (HEN DPG) and the National Organization of Blacks in Dietetics and Nutrition Member Interest Group (NOBIDAN MIG) for their joint Film Feastival 2020. This year's featured film is the "Arc of Justice" by Helen S. Cohen and Mark Lipman.  The film traces the remarkable journey of New Communities, Inc. and the struggle for racial justice and economic empowerment among African Americans in southwest Georgia.  This exciting event will highlight the theme: “Dismantling Racism in the Food System.”  We jointly feel that in the wake of recent racial unrest and historical and ongoing racial injustice, we must recognize and work to end racism in our food system. 
IMPORTANT:  As we near the event, you will receive an email confirmation with the Zoom link for the Feastival as well as the URL link to the film .  Please view the film previous to the Feastival and come prepared for a thought provoking presentation and discussion.
