Race, Food and Justice Conference 2014
Analyzing the Urban Food Movement through a Social Justice Lens
Presented by Environmental Health Watch, in collaboration with Rid-All Green Partnership, and Case Western Reserve University Social Justice Institute.
Building on the momentum of the Rid-All Green Partnership Project and the robust local and national food movement, the goal of this conference 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.
The two-day conference will be held at Case Western Reserve University (day 1) and University Circle United Methodist Church (day 2), April 4th-5th, 2014.
Day 2 of the conference will break into small discussion groups. Cleveland A.I.M. will take part in a short discussion entitled Food, Justice and Culture: Not Just a Black and White Thing.
