Lectures on the Lawn with Celida Soto

September 12, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

free / donations accepted
This week’s Lecture on the Lawn is not to be missed! Celida Soto Garcia works for Alabama Arise as their hunger advocacy coordinator. She is a Birmingham resident and graduated from Rutgers University with a dual degree in administration of justice and sociology. Celida grew up as a Jersey girl speaking Spanish first, and she has participated in movements related to economic injustice, women’s rights, food sovereignty, public safety and criminal justice reform. She has diverse work experiences, ranging from child welfare services to disaster recovery assistance to fostering community engagement as an educational liaison with the UAB Minority Health and Health Disparities Research Center. Celida is a leader with Alabama Rally Against Injustice, and is a prominent figure in the justice movement locally. We are thrilled to welcome such a powerful speaker and community leader to join us for our Lecture on the Lawn!
We will provide water and light snacks, chairs, and blankets. Unity Market is able to provide a modest guarantee for each speaker, but we ask that if you are able, you contribute a love offering of any amount via cask, check, or Venmo. Come early to shop our amazing selection of food and farm vendors from 4-7pm.
