Campfire 2 – Investing in Racial Justice for Sustainable Food Futures
Race-based oppression is foundational to our food system, past and present, and is a wound we all carry, though in very different ways — and yet, we can only heal what we are first able to name and understand. In order to build a more just and resilient food system, we must first unpack how the intersections of race and space have influenced our ability to nourish ourselves, our families, and the communities we inhabit.
This “campfire” session brings together an intergenerational, multi-racial panel of Southerners who have devoted their lives to cultivating communities with more aliveness and more self-determination. We will share stories and deepen analysis of how our food system both impoverishes and enriches us, collectively.
Our aim is to learn from these legacies, repair and shed what no longer serves us, and remember and reimagine what it will take to shape our shared future on the land.
