Equity at the Table Speaker Series
April 28, 2018 ¦ Saxapahaw, NC
“We Are Seeds: Land, Meaning and Money”
Join us Saturday, April the 28th for a discussion with Vanessa Jackson, a licensed clinical social worker and owner of Healing Circles, Inc., a healing practice based in Atlanta, GA.
In her presentation, Ms. Jackson will examine what meaning working the land has and the fiscal trauma which may emerge from the financial struggle to make a living or feed oneself. Participants will engage in conversations of how money shapes their lives and discuss tools for how to address and heal the emotional impacts of fiscal trauma.
Ms. Jackson has authored numerous books on mental health and therapy with marginalized populations. She is a nationally recognized speaker on mental health issues, with a focus on culturally conscious therapy and therapy with marginalized populations. Ms. Jackson has developed a concept, “fiscal trauma”, which served as the foundation for an economic empowerment recovery program for survivors of domestic violence. Her passion is supporting activists in creating healthy and balanced lives. She offers an Activists Assistance Program to provide politically conscious and clinically sound counseling and healing workshops to Atlanta-area feminist non-profit organizations. Ms. Jackson holds a Master Degree from Washington University-George Warren Brown School of Social Work.
Speaker: Vanessa Jackson

About Equity at the Table Speaker Series
In early 2018, the Come to the Table program launched the Equity at the Table Speaker Series. The series is designed for people who are working at the intersection of equity and food security and for those with the desire to think more critically about equity in their work and volunteerism. The series will consist of lectures, workshops and events addressing topics relevant to our work. We invite people of faith, farmers, activists, and journalists to attend and share their perspectives.
