The Cooking Activist

The Cooking Activist, Libby

Libby Mahoney started her first blog as The Cooking Activist in May 2010.  She started participating in human trafficking awareness events and joined forces with the abolitionist community in Northeast Florida at the beginning of 2011.  Libby tweets, blogs, and uses facebook to raise awareness about modern day slavery and shopping for slave-free products.  Libby is also a strong proponent for gmo-free food and seeks to educate the community about buying organic and preparing foods from scratch.  Libby is also a member of Slow Foods First Coast.

 We teach/speak at human trafficking awareness events and private/public events throughout Northeast Florida.  We have partnered with the Northeast Florida Human Trafficking Coalition and Task ForceRethreadedShop to Stop Slavery, The Zonta Club of Jacksonville, the Junior League of Jacksonville, the United Methodist Church of Mandarin, and SCTNowJacksonville with their events.  We have been active in the abolitionist community here in Northeast Florida since January, 2011.

The Cooking Activist Company wants to help the community in the prevention of human trafficking through education.
