This Rad Teen Print of the Week was created by Carrie McGinnis and M’Antayla Jackson for Just Harvest. Founded in 1986, Just Harvest is a membership organization which promotes economic justice and works to influence public policy and to educate, empower and mobilize the citizens of our community toward the elimination of hunger and poverty. Just Harvest helps folks navigate the system for services such as food stamps, and also advocates for legislative and social change. The girls met with co-director Tara Marks who shared her own experience, and the girls discussed stereotypes of welfare recipients versus reality, and the stigma attached to receiving services (which this print addresses) More info at www.justharvest.org
