Fighting for our Food: Building a Just and Equitable Food System

Saturday, June 7th, 11:45 AM to 1:00 PM
Room 442

The purpose of this panel is to share stories of Urban Food Justice movements around the country and explore opportunities for synergies between systems. Across the food supply chain from production to access, communities of color and low-wealth communities are disproportionately, negatively impacted. Community based organizations, Student Groups, Policy Organizations, and Urban Food Security Networks are working to address rights for farm workers and food service employees, and to increase access to sustainable, local sources of healthy food. The focus of this panel will be to highlight grassroots approaches to food justice and to identify opportunities for collective action.
