    Students suffer the most when it comes tho the City of Baltimore’s school lunch. In fact, the Baltimore Youth Council and the Baltimore Chapter of the Algebra Project are some of the loudest voices talking about this and how it relates to systematic oppression.

    How is it then that an event like this excludes the very young people that are suffering from the food system at our schools and don’t even get an opportunity to learn about a different system because of the ticket prices (and the kind of event it is)?!

    I think hearing from Will Allen talk about his work with growing power (especially in a city that’s 3/4 people of color, like me! and experiencing extreme poverty) would be beneficial…but let’s be real.

    Who can afford these kinds of tickets? Can young, working-class people?
    Do young people want to participate in a “cocktail party”?
    Who gets the privilege to learn from this great teacher?

    Sincerely,
    a very concerned student!
