Equity Group Activities
Join us for events that help to raise awareness of inequitable treatment or the experiences of marginalized communities. These are great ways to participate in making change in a tangible way, and to build community with those who face inequity every day.
Take the SNAP Challenge November 8th - 14th. The SNAP Challenge gives participants a glimpse into some of the struggles faced by millions of low-income Americans who are trying to put food on their tables. Participants use the average SNAP benefit as their budget for food for one week. The Challenge provides an opportunity for participants to experience how difficult it is for families living on SNAP to simultaneously avoid hunger, afford nutritious foods, and stay healthy with limited resources.
