A Week In Review: Speaking on community-led food justice efforts

What an amazing week!

On Monday, at The People’s Survival Program, I had the pleasure to facilitate a critical community discussion on the Black Panther Party, and specifically, the People’s Free Food Program. In addition to analyzing the accomplishments of the People’s Free Food Program, we unpacked the logistics of the program and elements of their ability to serve. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

We discussed the importance of amplifying community-based food systems in the effort to combat food insecurity and rejecting neocolonialism. Additionally, we recognized existing efforts toward Black community-based food systems such as Mandela Grocery, and locally, Glut Food.

On Wednesday, at Food Justice: Dialogue & Difference to present on A Holistic Approach to Food Security to discuss the importance of community-led food justice activism.

In the presentation I spoke to several elements of food access and food security, to actions that amplify community-led food justice advocacy, and to several avenues through which access can be responsibly & effectively shared with individuals, groups or communities experiencing food insecurity.

Huge thank you to GMU’s Office of Diversity, Inclusion and Multicultural Education and Virginia Student Environmental Coalition for inviting me!
