FRESH Initiative Reception Video

On Monday, December 7th, a broad coalition of community organizations, unions, and city officials (known as the Good Food Good Jobs coalition) came together at the New School to celebrate the the passing of the new FRESH initiative for NYC. NY Faith & Justice was a part of this coalition and played a large role in this celebration.

The New School has posted a new video of the entire reception. See NYFJ Faith Community Organizer Christopher Muller perform a spoken word to open the ceremony (at the 1:25 mark) and Executive Director Lisa Sharon Harper deliver the invocation (at the 7:25 mark). Later in the video you can see the entire speech that NY City Council Speaker Christine Quinn delivered in which she announced her new Food Works Program (at the 51 min mark).
