WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 7

Welcome Reception
6:30pm-7:30pm 

Join us on the beachside patio to welcome Healthy Behavior Conference attendees.  We will serve light appetizers and have a cash bar and plenty of good music alongside a beautiful view of Mission Bay. 

This reception will also highlight the work of the AjA Project and its collaborative partners.

The AjA Project of San Diego is partnering with local media organizations on a new initiative called Speak City Heights, an initiative sponsored by the California Endowment. Speak City Heights is aimed at amplifying the voices of residents in one of San Diego’s most diverse neighborhoods, City Heights. Through reporting and multimedia projects from partners—KPBS, voiceofsandiego.org, The AjA Project and Media Arts Center San Diego—the collaborative will help residents and policymakers frame a discussion about what constitutes a healthy community, its barriers and how they will overcome them in City Heights.

As a part of Speak City Heights, The AjA Project ran an arts-based after-school workshop on Food Justice at Crawford High School. Through photography and writing, AjA teens explored City Heights and learned how their culture was linked to their food practices and their access to healthy, cheap food. Through this participatory process, key learnings emerged that helped to inform and guide the news coverage by media partners.
