Join Brooklyn Brewery for a conversation with one of Philly's most notable activists, Judy Wicks, as she shares stories from her memoir, Good Morning, Beautiful Business: the Unexpected Journey of an Activist Entrepreneur and Local Economy Pioneer.
As an entrepreneur, Judy is best known for Philadelphia’s landmark White Dog Cafe, which she founded in 1983 on the first floor of her house and managed for 26 years. Under Judy’s leadership, White Dog became a leader in the local food movement, and has become ground zero for efforts in Philadelphia, and nationally, to organize locally owned businesses.
Judy is also the founder of Fair Food, an organization aims to build a sustainable and humane local food economy by spreading the local purchasing practices of White Dog Cafe, and been acknowledged by Oprah Magazine as one of five “Amazingly Gifted and Giving Food Professionals."
Admission includes a Brooklyn Brewery beer, and a portion of all proceeds will benefit Slow Food Philadelphia. RSVP now to reserve your spot!
