Join Food Secure Canada from November 12 – 18, 2020 for a series of online conversations and workshops to explore the intersections between food systems, anti-racism, decolonization, and environmental justice movements.
“Cultivating Change” will showcase the work of Indigenous, Black and racialized food leaders, and build consciousness and capacity for anti-racist and decolonized approaches and allyship within the food movement.
As a food movement, bold change is needed from farm to fork, to regenerate Indigenous foodlands, and to ensure that everyone has access to healthy, just, and sustainable food. However, it is impossible to achieve this change without centering reconciliation, decolonization, and racial justice in the development of the policies and programs that shape our food systems.
ENSURING EVERYONE IS AT THE POLICYMAKING TABLE IS A PRIORITY FOR US. This event is by donation or free of charge to not have barriers to participation. We have included suggested donations if you are able to support our work as we do not have core funding. Should you wish to enter an amount other than those proposed, please contact Amelie at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Over the week, we will discuss the following topics, among others:
- Cultivating change in a post-Covid world
- Supporting Indigenous and Black food sovereignty
- Championing decent work and justice for workers along the food chain
- Building resilient local food systems
- Ensuring everyone is at the policymaking table
