Washington, DC

American University
Event: A coalition of American University students and student organizations are planning to host Keith McHenry, the co-founder of Food Not Bombs, on Saturday, November 16th from 5:00-6:30 PM, to kick-off National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week.

"Food Not Bombs volunteers have been smashing hunger and squashing tofu in protest to the exploitation of capitalism for over three decades. Keith will talk about the principles, history and Food Not Bombs participation in the global transformation away from corporate domination. Hunger and poverty are intentional features of capitalism and will increase as corporate power increases. Over 25,000 people die every day because of hunger often as tons of food pass them on the way to better prices. Oxfam and the UN are reporting that hunger will be on the increase this year leading to civil unrest and violent police repression. The capitalist food system is not only causing millions of animals to suffer but is directly responsible for an increase in food insecurity, disease and the climate crisis. Keith's presentation will inspire you to participate in the transition to a future free from violence and exploitation. You are invited to help build Food Not Bombs in the District." AU is also planning to table on the quad from November 18-22 to raise awareness of hunger and homelessness issues and to raise money for the National Coalition for the Homeless. Other events TBD.
