Food is Political: Systemic & Institutional Oppression in the Food System

Hosted by Environment Hamilton and Hamilton Centre for Civic Inclusion
Join urban farmer Cheyenne Sundance for this two-hour event that will explore racial injustice in the food system.

About this Event

This workshop shines a light on the history and structural realities of racial injustice in the food system. We will explore previous and current food and land sovereignty movements and apply them to our own lives and organising. We will examine our personal and societal roles in resistance and also in complacency regarding issues of food inequity. We will develop tangible and accessible action plans, share our truths, and brainstorm future actions in a group circle activity.

While this event is open to all, space will be prioritised for Black, Indigenous, and racialized youth to attend.

Light refreshments will be provided.

This event will be held in an accessible space, including automatic front doors and wheelchair-accessible washrooms on the main floor of the building. There is a gender-neutral washroom. The building is located on the 10 and 01 bus routes. Please contact the event organisers for additional accessibility inquiries.
