Community Dialogues on Food & Justice: Who is at the Table?

This dynamic, participatory workshop series will provide Portland’s social justice and food systems activists the opportunity to collaborate, learn, network, and co-produce anti-oppression strategies with the goal of fostering the multi-racial, multi-ethnic, cross-class alliances necessary to transform the food movement into an integrated effort that emphasizes both food systems and social justice.  

This 8-week series will run January through March, 2013. It will be structured as a series of 2.5 hour workshops, giving participants the time and space to “unpack” issues of race, class, and difference in both a social justice and food systems context.  All sessions will be facilitated by Sally Eck, a trained anti-oppression facilitator.
