Uprooting Racism in the Food System – 2020 Virtual Workshops by Soul Fire Farm

The Uprooting Racism training is a theory and action workshop for environmental and food justice leaders to uproot systemic racism in our organizations and society. We delve deep into the history and structural realities of racial injustice and develop an understanding of the movement strategies of frontlines communities struggling for food sovereignty. We will examine our personal and societal roles of complicity in and resistance to the system. Much of the time will be spent developing tangible action plans – to use our sphere of influence to uproot these oppressions. True to Soul Fire Farm’s values and culture, this work will be rooted in fierce love, courageous self-reflection, and healing connection to land.

Building the pipeline: University Procurement for food systems change

In this second webinar in the Wallace Center series on institutional investment, we are focusing on the role that institutions of higher education play in this work. Colleges and universities have unique opportunities and face specific challenges in shifting their food procurement to be more local, sustainable, and equitable. This webinar will cover the challenges of working with university procurement, and some creative approaches that are working on the ground. It will feature a plenary-style discussion with a diverse group of practitioners working on this from around the US, including representatives from Real Food Generation, Farm to Institution New England, Commonwealth Kitchen, Ohio State University, and UNC Pembroke.
