Come help Community Alliance for Global Justice develop a popular education series!
Saturday June 2nd, 1pm to 5pm, Location TBD
Please RSVP by May 24th to reserve your spot – or if you have any questions – contact Laura Titzer, Food Justice Project Co-Chair: laura.titzer[at]gmail.com
Community Alliance for Global Justice receives many requests from organizations, student groups, academics, individuals and businesses who are interested in food justice issues, and want to learn more. We also see a huge need not only to increase food literacy, but to teach the step-by-step skills for organizing food justice campaigns. In response, CAGJ’s Food Justice Project is developing a Community Education program, and we would be honored if you would participate in shaping it.
CAGJ’s objective is to develop a popular education series to inform and activate a varied public about food justice and food sovereignty. To help us develop this workshop series, we are seeking input from our allies and our community. We hope to create a series that motivates and inspires the public through the inclusion of all your voices.
We invite: CAGJ members and volunteers; CAGJ’s ally organizations and businesses (or designated representatives); and any individual interested in moving food justice organizing forward.
If you are able to attend, we request that you participate in the entire workshop, which will be based on the World Café model, and last 4 hours. We will provide snacks and beverages. At the end of the workshop we will request willing participants to join a work group to finalize the educational series based on the information collected from this workshop.
Topics of discussion will include themes such as:
- What is the “food system”?
- Current state of the food system & defining the problem
- Sexism, Classism & Racism and our food system
- Farm Bill
- Food Justice & Food sovereignty: What would an equitable food system include?
- Political change vs. Consumer choice
- Solutions/Taking Action: Models/projects vs. movements/action
Please feel free to call CAGJ as well, if you have any questions! 206-405-4600
