HEALTH JUSTICE MANIFESTO - {The Bigger Picture Project}

Food injustice is an issue that permeates the lives of people in underresourced communities everyday. Largely affecting people of color, food injustice is a lack of access to healthy food in schools and neighborhoods. In this PSA by Youth Speaks inc, and The University of California, San Francisco’s Center for Vulnerable Populations, these young adults explore the topic of diabetes, food justice and health justice (We see you Jade, get it!).

“We want an end of type 2 diabetes in young people…this disease overwhelmingly devastates poor people of color.”

“1/3 Latino children, 1/2 Black children who are born in 2000 will develop diabetes in their lifetime”

“Today a bunch of broccoli costs more than a full meal at a fast food restaurant”

“There are no grocery stores in poor neighborhoods but liquor stores and fast food chains on every block”

“In 50 years 1 in 3 people in the U.S. will have diabetes.” 

So what exactly IS disodium glutomate? Let’s raise the awareness everyone.
