Aaron “AJ” Johnson is healing the history of racialized violence in Tulsa, Oklahoma with the first full-service grocery store to operate in North Tulsa’s predominantly Black neighborhood in over a decade. But Oasis Fresh Markets is more than just a grocery store; true to its name, it’s a safe haven, a community gathering place, and a source of financial education and support.
Whether speaking about community uplift, food justice, or health disparities, AJ brings on-the-ground experience with frameworks from his time as a Community Health fellow at The Aspen Institute, among other honors and networks of advocates. AJ is a force of food justice, equity, and love that lights up any room with his indefatigably positive energy and solutions-orientation to all that ails us.
