October 11 – From Advocacy to Action: A Hunger Policy Primer
From city councils to Congress, decisions made by elected officials have an impact on hunger – both positive and negative. Our expert presenters will shed light on policies that have worsened food insecurity, sets of policies specifically intended to address hunger, and what is (or could be) happening in policy to address the issue in Oklahoma and across the United States.
Ty Jones Cox,
Vice President for Food Assistance, the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities
Director of Policy and Government Relations, Intertribal Agriculture Council
Executive Director, Hunger Free Oklahoma
Though this session is primarily focused on state and federal level policies, Oklahoma City Councilor and food security advocate, Nikki Nice, will help kick off the beginning of the session.
