What role do we see ourselves playing in racial/economic justice work? What are the barriers we face and how can we support each other to step into further action?
July’s Farming for Justice Discussion Group will be featuring Cornell Student Marquan Jones, Developmental Sociology, ’20, discussing food insecurity in the Cornell University educational establishment, who will be joined by Kathleen Pasetty, owner of Manndible Cafe. This is an important and often overlooked aspect of institutional education, and hopefully this month’s discussion group will bring light to the injustice within certain food systems, and also discuss potential solutions or ways to offset this prevalent issue.
Please note this months Discussion group will be on a Wednesday evening, from 6-7:30pm EST, in hopes to create a larger Farming for Justice network, cultivating relationships at the intersection of farmers, food workers, consumers, and advocates, bringing our minds together for justice and equity within the farming and food industry.
There is no cost to join! You’re encouraged to attend in person at the Groundswell Center office, or join us by Zoom. (Zoom info will be shared once you register.)
