All in East Harlem

In June 2014, Hunter College and the East Harlem community organized All in East Harlem, a vision conference that brought together Hunter College faculty and students and the many individuals and organizations concerned about the future of East Harlem and the well-being of its residents.

On a sunny summer Saturday in June, over 175 people came out to share ideas and discuss the potential partnerships that Hunter College can forge with the East Harlem community. The conference included several keynote speakers, including Congressman Charles Rangel, labor leader Dennis Rivera, and Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer.

From the conference program:

 

The New York City Food Policy Center co-facilitated the Food Access, Promotion and Affordability Work Group where several East Harlem health and human service professionals discussed the health issues confronting our community.  The group also identified several actions that Hunter can take to promote collaboration and resource sharing among groups working to promote healthier food environments in East Harlem.
