IZI in the News
“With Marnita, you get to show up as your authentic self and build relationships across cultures and communities,” Julia says. “So many people only see our communities as helpless— or they see us as criminals. If they actually took the time to listen to who we are, they might realize that they have the wrong idea and see that we really have something to offer.”
Yvonne Goldsberry: Like our friends at Marnita’s Table, we need to keep bringing people together in community to have difficult and invigorating discussions about health and well-being. The stakes are high. We must change the way we think to shape the future — before it shapes us.
Marnita's Table is a 501(c)3. Our 18-year old organization seeks to close gaps across difference through making Intentional Social Interaction (“IZI") / Digital Intentional Social Interaction (“dIZI”) the new pattern for society where Indigenous; Black and brown people; the disenfranchised; the poor; the LGBTQ+; those from historically and currently pushed to the margins communities; the traditionally unheard and excluded are actively and intentionally included and valued at the policy-making and resource-sharing table.
