Promoting Food Justice and Environmental Sustainability in Tucson

Noticing the prominence of unsustainable agricultural practices and industrial agriculture/agricultural subsidies, Mariah has dedicated her Blueprint to combatting these problems in her Tucson community. Through her analysis of the intersections of food justice, racism and unsustainable practices, Mariah advocated on behalf of the most traditionally marginalized people in her community in order to bring them healthy, local and organic foods. Focusing on the importance of accessibility, Mariah planned to create more holistically supported farms-to-school programs and school gardens.
