Traditional meals beloved by immigrants from their culture are often subjected to harmful stereotypes and generalized into the broad term of "ethnic." In an attempt to reclaim the word, we created Ethnic Aisle, a conference focused on educating folks about the rich history behind these foods and opening a discourse on systemic discrimination.
