Food and Farming for Organizing in Immigrant Communities

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Immigrants are integral members of farming communities in the United States. Although much of their work is made invisible by the market and institutional racism, it is critical. Our current food system depends on them, as does building a truly sustainable alternative. Immigrants labor on industrial farms, run their own farm and food businesses, and are active participants in community gardens throughout our region.  Join three community based, immigrant-led organizations from throughout our region as they dialogue about how they have used this base as a space to build power within immigrant communities.
