PBM: Exploring Food Insecurity and Homelessness
A Deeper Look at Food Access and Homelessness in America
Tuesday, March 26, 2019 · 5:30 PM - 7 PM
The Retriever Essentials team is so excited to be partnering with the Mosaic Center for their Pawsitive Bodies and Minds Week tonight in Commons 329!
Pawsitive Bodies & Minds (PBM) Week is composed of multidisciplinary programming, highlighting the intersections between cross-cultural diversity, identity, health and medicine. This week of programming engages UMBC community members to think about diversity and inclusion in a different way, specifically on the important role that identity plays into the health of our bodies and minds. This year includes a focus on various identities and practices that affect our physical well-being, such as class (SES), race, sex, and self-care.
Our session focuses on the stigma around homelessness and people with food insecurity as well as some common misconceptions with this population. The discussion will be followed by a meet and greet session with Lauren Kataja, Program Coordinator for the Retriever Essentials Program. Participants will be able to ask questions and explore the experience around this topic.
All undergrads, grads, staff, and faculty are encouraged to attend! Need to request disability-based accommodations or have any questions? Contact Becca Mann (firstname.lastname@example.org), Mosaic Intern for Student Social Justice, Equity, and Inclusion and Carlos Turcios (email@example.com) Coordinator for Student Diversity and Inclusion or Campus Life's Mosaic at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We hope to see you tonight!
