Sinews in the Cypress: From Sustainability to Green Infrastructure

April 7, 2021 @ 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm


We are thrilled to announce our April event in our interactive speaker series on April 7th, 2021. This month we are exploring a variety of issues from sustainability to community organizing to green infrastructure, focusing on our own community of New Orleans East.

It is important that we continue elevating AAPI voices and experiences through our work and platform. For this discussion we are honored to host Khai Nguyen, the co-founder of Veggi Farmers Cooperative and a project manager at MQVN Community Development Corporation. VAYLA and Veggi Farmers Co-op both sprouted from events of environmental injustice in our backyards. As our communities survive through multilayered traumas, we continue building and thriving. We’ve been here, we see us, and we support us.

We will start with Khai Nguyen presenting for 10 minutes followed by 10 minutes of prepared questions followed by 10 minutes of questions from the audience.

For this event we will limit the number of attendees to create a more intimate atmosphere to foster a more open and conversational dialogue.

This event will be facilitated by Zachary Lang, our Earth Rising Coordinator.

We look forward to seeing you there!
