Civic Leaders focus on health and food for upcoming event

Press Release:
Mark your calendars now for two Civic Dialogues tackling issues related to Health and Food Security. Come to one or both discussions; a reminder for the second session will be posted in April.

Featuring Civic Leader Fellows
Bethany Schroeder, President of the Board of Directors of the Ithaca Health Alliance
Jemila Sequeira, Gardens for Humanity, Whole Community Project, Cornell Cooperative Extension

Wednesday, February 24 and Wednesday, April 21
6:00-7:30 p.m. at the Women's Community Building

Light Dinner and Childcare are provided both evenings!

Please register so that food and childcare arrangements can be accommodated: or 607-255-1148.

Civic Dialogues involve community members and leaders, student activists, and school faculty in problem solving about particular issues to provide collective action. This series is informed and
driven by community organizing principles, both because the issues to be taken into consideration are brought to our attention by community leaders and because activities, including mobilization, are implemented under community leadership. In this series of two evenings, themes from the first Dialogue will be used to organize the second.

Sponsored by the Cornell Public Service Center and co-sponsored by Cornell Cooperative Extension, the Whole Community Project of CCE, the Ithaca Health Alliance, the Ithaca Free Clinic, and the the
Office of Government and Community Relations at Cornell University.
