Social Work Day 2022: Food Sovereignty and Justice: Moving Beyond the Food Bank

Social Work Day 2022 is possible due to the generous support of the Kirk Haney Fund

  • Monday, March 14th from 8:30am-4:00pm

This year’s theme is on access to healthy, culturally appropriate food, and the land to sustainably grow it on, for low-income communities, especially BIPOC populations, and how this relates to our mission as social workers. The main speaker in the morning session at the Alumni Center at Illinois State University is Chantel Johnson. She is from the Chicago area and is a social worker developing and running a small farmstead (Off-Grid In Color) that aims to provide resources for health and well-being to the local community and beyond.

The afternoon session will consist of a choice of three workshops. Two are offsite with limited capacity and one continues inside at the Alumni Center at Illinois State University. In the registration form, you will be asked to rank your top two choices and we will attempt to accommodate those choices but it is not guaranteed. Please see the Conference Agenda for more specifics on those workshops.
