First Trailblazers Program Event -Michelle Obama

Leave a comment

On February 18th, the Center for Social Justice & Civil Liberties held its inaugural Trailblazer Program event that focused on former First Lady Michelle Obama’s work on food education. Kids learned about Michelle Obama’s “MyPlate” campaign which emphasizes the importance of a balanced diet including all 5 food groups- fruits, vegetables, grains, protein, and dairy. Our favorite part of the day was when kids were able to plant their own vegetable seeds to take home and watch grow. You can view pictures from the event below.

Our next Trailblazers Program event will take place on March 18th, from 1-3pm, and will focus on the life and legacy of comedian, actress, producer and television legend Lucille Ball. We hope to see you then!
