We are so proud to be promote Trina Moyles’ testament to women from Guatemala, Nicaragua, the United States, Canada, Uganda, the Democratic Republic of Congo, India, and Cuba, as she explores the ways women are responding to the barriers they face in providing the world a healthy diet.
In 2008, Trina Moyles began her career in international development and human rights education at Change for Children. For five years, Trina inspired Alberta youth to get involved in creating social change. She facilitated educational programming; organized inspiring conferences; coordinated the Rural Roots Youth program; and co-organized the Video Conference for Hope, the Youth Council, and Rural Rights, engaging high school youth in a deliberative dialogue on human rights.
Trina also worked as the International Projects Assistant at Change for Children, and now, as she launches her first book, she credits the rich lessons of solidarity and human rights for helping to cultivate the foundational skills to work collaboratively with local communities.
The book launch for Women Who Dig: Farming, Feminism, and the Fight to Feed the World will serve as not only a celebration of women around the world and of the woman whose words have been carefully compiled, but through the launch, Trina is raising funds for Change for Children projects in Guatemala — for the very communities whose women and whose stories made their way onto the pages.
Please join us at the launch in support of Trina, and through Change for Children, in support of the very women who dig.
