If you could have dinner with 1 person who you regard as a leader, who would it be and why?
I would have dinner with Tock, the watchdog from “The Phantom Tollbooth” who sagely guides Milo through his journey in the Lands Beyond.
What motivates you to create social impact?
I am motivated to create social impact by a sense of justice and optimism that we can build a more equitable and sustainable world for humans, other species, and the planet.
Host Site Overview
The Public Health Law Center’s mission is to improve public health through the power of law.
Host Site Project
The New Sector Alliance position will support the work of the Public Health Law Center to increase access to healthy food in Minnesota and around the country. The Public Health Law Center works with local community groups, local and state public health departments, national public health organizations, and others on policy, systems, and environmental strategies to ensure that individuals and communities, particularly those with more limited healthy food options, have access to the nutritious food they need to lead healthy lives. The Center’s work to increase access to healthy food includes work in early child care, hospital and healthcare environments, schools, and community settings. The New Sector Fellow will focus on increasing the capacity of our programs by conducting research, developing resources for communities we work in, conducting community outreach, and developing training materials. All of these activities are intended to make our programs sustainably stronger.
