Farmer Chat – Racial and Food Justice

Join us for our virtual Farmer Chat on November 16th at 7pm to talk about farmers’ roles at the intersection of food justice and racial justice.

This is a continuation of the conversation on the intersection of food and racial justice. We will continue our discussion and explore some of the emergent themes from previous talks including land access, equitable treatment in government programs and services designed to help farmers, building community where you live, and the possibility of a statewide farmer ally directory.

This is also a space to talk about current events and how they relate to the farmer role in racial justice.

We will also hold space for resource sharing to continue breaking down access to information as a form of privilege (as previously discussed).  We welcome farmers, farm workers and agricultural producers of all kinds to this conversation.  Thank you in advance for respecting the lives and lived experience of BIPOC farmers and people everywhere, and for making this a safe place for discussion and discovery.

***Please note***
This is a space for farmers to talk to their fellow producers.  As an industry, direct-to-consumer and market farmers need a space to talk to their peers about technical solutions to problems that put the future of their businesses in question.  We love and appreciate the support of eaters and community members during this difficult time, but if you are not an agricultural producer who is actively selling food or farm products to your community, please do not join this call.  We have other programs that are open to the whole community, and are doing our best to make relevant information available to our loyal local food supporters. Thank you for keeping this a forum just for farmers and ranchers to connect.
