Resist Together! Reframing the Food Movement

Thursday, March 23, 2017 - 6:00pm to 8:30pm

CUESA (Center for Urban Education about Sustainable Agriculture) hosts another talk about food politics. Join us!

This event is for anyone interested in building the movement for a just and sustainable food system: one where immigrants are welcome, workers are cared for, people are nourished, and climate change is faced head-on. Realizing this vision will require collaboration across cultures and issues. How can the food movement support broader efforts to protect civil rights, public health, and the environment? This is a time for food, labor, climate, anti-racism, and other forces to unite.

This panel of movement leaders and community organizers will share success stories and help us understand how, working together, we have the power to create change. After the talk, mingle with representatives from local organizations to find out what we can do to keep government accountable and create a new future.

Speakers:
• Evelyn Rangel-Medina, Restaurant Opportunities Centers United
• Edwin Carmona-Cruz, La Raza Centro Legal
• Amelia Moore, Union of Concerned Scientists
• Leslie Mah, Nourish|Resist
• Stephen Satterfield, Farm-To-Fork SF (moderator)

Location: Port Commission Hearing Room, Ferry Building, San Francisco
