Food Sovereignty

This track will unpack the historical and present day realities of our food system: a system that is built on the backs of those who grow, raise, catch, and handle our food and is steeped in racism while growing from capitalism.


We will uplift the stories of communities challenging the status quo: communities of color reclaiming their land, workers organizing for dignity and a living wage, young people leading food justice efforts in communities and schools, activists challenging the connections of the prison industrial complex with agricultural labor, and so much more. You will hear about a food movement that is community and democratically controlled, transparent, racially equitable, economically just, and ecologically responsible. We will learn from one another about how our communities are working towards a new food system and map out what we can do to shape it collectively.
