What Does It Mean to Support Social Movements?

We are happy to share our animated video “If You Give Someone a Fish…” that debuted at the 2016 WhyHunger Chapin Awards and illustrates WhyHunger’s unique approach to solving the hunger problem and invites you to think beyond the familiar. The video was introduced by Executive Director Noreen Springstead. Here is an excerpt from her remarks:

“Hunger is a solvable problem. Harry and Bill knew that more than 40 years ago, and I am more assured than ever that the solution is within reach. There is a growing awareness and acknowledgement in our society that our current systems are broken. Generations are coming together around the bold truth that we must ensure that EVERYONE has access to opportunity, living wages, racial equity, nutritious food, and to justice. We must push for those rights in order to realize the type of world that we want to live in. We are seeing solutions springing up in grassroots-led movements across the country and around the world. Those grassroots innovations and movements are strengthened when organizations like WhyHunger walk the road with them, support their efforts, amplify their voices and weave them together into movements that can reach farther, move faster and grow indefinitely. They need allies – and we need allies. First and foremost, we need the leadership of people most affected by hunger and poverty, frontline grassroots partners who can inform and inspire this burgeoning movement, and we also need you to walk this road with us.”

We hope you find the video as inspiring as we do!
