Starting a Food Justice Non-Profit: Personal Reflections of a Faith-Based Agricultural Attorney

Date: Tuesday, October 17, 2017
Time: 5:00 pm
Description: Ms. Jillian Hishaw will discuss the nuances of performing faith-based work while balancing many policy and legal restrictions that come with managing a nonprofit. Although, Ms. Hishaw is not an ordained minister or a divinity alum, the premise of her work aligns with the parable outlined of the Good Samaritan (Luke 10: 25-37 & James 1:27). Agriculture is the bread basket of our food system and the tillers of the soil are our farmers. Ms. Hishaw's familial and spiritual reasoning for establishing F.A.R.M.S. along with F.A.R.M.S. program focus will be discussed at length. Ms. Hishaw's 11-year career in food and environmental justice will highlight various alternative faith based career options for Wake Forest's emerging spiritual leaders.
