(June 2020) US agriculture’s roots in colonization and enslavement mean that BIPOC producers still have limited access to capital, financial support, and markets—this is changing, slowly but surely, thanks to the work of food and farm organizations, leaders and communities that are dismantling racism and white supremacy, and imagining alternate ways to be in relationship with land, nature and each other. Hear from some of these leaders.
(June, 2020) Navajo Nation has been disproportionately impacted by coronavirus, and even as its residents are dealing with the impacts of the virus itself, members of the community are organizing together to ensure the safety and well-being of their people. In this webinar, hear from a policy expert, community organizer, and farmer and researcher about how they are rising up to the current moment.
(March 2020) Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, our nation’s farmers and food workers have remained hard at work to provide for our survival. This moment is clarifying our reliance on workers who are navigating a system already rooted in inequities. These 21+ million members of our food system are truly essential workers - without them, few of us will eat. Yet many are facing dangerous conditions, and have little access to protective gear. That is morally wrong, dangerous, and unsustainable. Hear from three inspiring organizers on ways we can work together to create a food and farm system that values the workers who are at its core.
