Afternoon Plenary: Migration, Displacement, Organizing and Resilience: Dispossession, Restoration, and Reparations

Land control is at the heart of how our society works: our politics, our laws, our economy. The dispossession of land from Native Americans, and subsequently from Black, Latin-American, and Asian people in the United States and in their home countries, is the foundation of our global food system - and a root cause of many of our global challenges, from immigration to climate change to wealth inequality. In this session, we'll hear from panelists not only about the history and impacts of land dispossession for their communities, but also the ways that communities organize for resilience in the face of these challenges. We'll also discuss why land reparations are key to both food justice and the economic, political and social liberation of all people.
