Justice & Ag's Mission Statement
The Justice and Agriculture Working Group is made up of farmers and collaborators who organize towards food justice in our region. We study lineages of stewardship on this land, as well as ongoing histories of colonization and slavery here, which are the roots of present-day injustices in the food system. As land stewards we must share these understandings, make them visible, and work towards reparation and liberation. We activate the land, food, and members of the local farming community to support anti-racist work led by indigenous people and people of color.
