Our industrial model of growing and consuming food is contributing to both climate change and social inequity. Put simply: industrial capitalism is undermining our ability to build sustainable food systems for all.
In this panel discussion, organizer, educator, and writer, Kali Akuno, will share his experiences organizing Cooperation Jackson, an emerging network of worker cooperatives and supporting institutions based in Jackson, Mississippi.
Akuno will discuss challenges and opportunities associated with advancing alternative economic models that support food sovereignty, climate justice, and racial justice.
He will be joined by local voices, including Leticia Deawuo of Black Creek Community Farm and Adabu Brownhill Jefwa of the National Farmers Union.
Free and open to the public. Registration required at Eventbrite link provided.
