This FREE event is a collaboration between Environmental Health Watch, Growing Power, Rid-All Green Partnership, and the Case Western Reserve University Social Justice Institute. The two day conference will be held at Case Western Reserve University, April 25th-26th, 2013.
The Race, Food and Justice Conference will highlight and increase grassroots support for Growing Power’s Growing Food and Justice for All Initiative. Building on the momentum of the Rid-All Green Partnership Project and the robust local and national food movement, our goal is to create a space for dialog and discussion about social justice issues, how the history of farming, culture and race factor into economics, land use policies, land ownership, health, jobs, community programs, and decisions that impact our most vulnerable communities and communities of color.
Our ongoing dialog will address race and racism,a root cause of health disparities we see manifested within our communities.
