Every year on March 8th, thousands of events are held throughout the world to inspire women and celebrate achievements. This year, join Oxfam America and Oxfam Action Corps Minnesota and help us honor Semhar Araia, founder and executive director of the Disapora African Women's Network (DAWN).
We will be screening the film "Africa's Last Famine" (produced by independent broadcaster Link TV and Oxfam America) - a documentary examining solutions to famine and chronic hunger around the world. In addition to the film and a discussion about food justice and the role of women in fighting global hunger, our guest of honor, Semhar, will be speaking about her work locally with DAWN and globally with Oxfam America.
We will also be providing food by El Coco Loco Catering, a local catering business offering awesome authentic Mexican cuisine. You can check these guys out at their website.
