S:US’ core mission of driving scalable solutions to transform the lives of people with disabilities, people in poverty and people facing homelessness is predicated on embracing the solutions that contribute to righting societal imbalances and ultimately creating opportunities for all. At the heart of what we do is a firm commitment to eliminating the disparities caused by racial discrimination, bias and health inequity, and eradicating these within our practices and programs to help us move towards true social justice.
The first of Summit to Serve New York conferences, which will address social justice themes, will focus on Food Security. This half-day gathering will feature noted community leaders in the NYC-region food justice movement, diverse speakers from multiple sectors, and organizations serving New Yorkers in the food security and food justice space showcasing their work.
In addition to the Summit to Serve New York, S:US is hosting other Earth Week activities focused on Food Security. To help in our efforts, we invite you to bring a canned or boxed food item to the Summit so we can add to our Food Drive, concluding on April 20th. Donations will be distributed to S:US supportive housing sites on Friday, April 21st.
