Green Festival Speakers
Tania evolved from at "risk youth" to community activist and organizer. She works with Urban Tilth, a Richmond non-profit manifesting a more sustainable, healthy and just food system. Also Tania works with Youth Movement Records and RYSE Center, as a Media and Arts assistant program coordinator. In April 2010, she participated with nearly 30 activists and organizers representing various grassroots, base-building organizations, in a two-week Liberation Permaculture Design Course, hosted by Movement Generation at the Occidental Arts and Ecology Center. At the largest youth led Eco-Music Festival in the Nation, she was awarded the Youth Champion Award for her environmental activism. Conscious Youth Media Crew nominated her to premier on the "Toxic Triangle" documentary. The City of Richmond presented her with the Martin Luther King Richmond Community Leadership and Service Award. Tania is in college pursuing her B.A in Environmental Studies and Media.
