2021 WA SNAP-Ed Statewide Forum Re-Cap

2021 WA SNAP-Ed Statewide Forum Re-Cap

Transforming How We Set the Table:

Commitment to Equity, Community-Driven Collaboration, and Justice

August 17-19, 2021


Recap & Resources

The 2021 Forum was held virtually and offered opportunities for WA SNAP-Ed providers to learn about current and emerging programming, seek new ways of serving communities, and connect with SNAP-Ed providers across the state.

Each day consisted of main group sessions to advance our collective understanding of the conference theme and its role in our work for all attendees and breakout sessions that offered a deeper dive into specific topics. The breakout sessions were organized around our five statewide interventions. Attendees were able to select breakout session based on their interest and what work they are doing in their local community.

Recordings and resources from the forum are available, but have unfortunately been moved. CTW is working on re-adding them to the SNAP-Ed website. Feel free to contact us if there is a session you are specifically looking for. Please note:  we were not able to record the session with Professor Edwin Lindo.

Graphic illustrations done during the forum are available and links to the sessions that were illustrated can be found below.

Graphic Illustrations

Yen Azzaro, an activist artist, illustrator and graphic recorder created graphic illustrations of the three day forum. They were shared during the closing session and depict the discussion and presentations that took place.  Below are links to her work.
