Community Health Navigator, Warehouse Workers for Justice 

HEAL’s SoPL is vital especially in our political climate today because humanity's destiny is at stake. Education under SoPL should give communities of color the tools needed to mobilize the food and farm justice movement. Being a part of this SoPL will allow me to educate and motivate my fellow community members on how to take back their collective power.
