Join Us for Roxtweet!

Please join Haley House and The Food Project for the summer 2012 #Roxtweet: Food Justice @ Food Day! This summer's tweetup is a conversation about how our communities and organizations can use Food Day 2012 to highlight social, economic and environmental justice issues in our food system. Our discussion topics will include: Growing Food; Gathering Food; Food Worker Justice; Advocacy, Policy, and Civic Engagement; Diversity in the Food Movement; and Understanding Hunger Today. Attendees are also encouraged to self-organize around other topics of their choosing! We hope to come out of the event with new and strengthened connections among community members interested in food justice, and with some concrete event plans for Food Day 2012. Come out and share your ideas!

Never heard of a Tweetup? A Tweetup is an event where people who use Twitter come together to interact in person. Often, these events are a chance for people who intersect only through online social media to connect face-to-face and create stronger networks and connections. Attendees can make new contacts, discuss their opinions and campaigns in more detail, exchange ideas and stories, and plan for future events.
