Leading for a Liberated Food System will introduce participants to racial justice and anti-oppression concepts and practices over a full day (9am-6pm) on Thursday, November 7, 2019.
Sign up for the conference here!
In this training food systems advocates, practitioners, and workers will learn practices that address racism and gentrification through a solidarity economy lens. Through this training, participants will:
- Understand the scope of an anti-oppression framework, where race and a relationship to the land sits in that framework, and why we are prioritizing it
- Understand the mechanisms by which implicit bias manifests structural oppression in social organizations and ecologically
- Understand what attitudes and practices maintain systemic racism and how to approach seeing and undoing one’s own implicit bias
- Develop language and frameworks to talk about sensitive issues within the food system concerning race and equity
- Discuss food systems relationship to the body and labor
- Apply concepts to current situations that participants are in with a focus on transforming dynamics of oppression
- Learn how to use body-based tools in their work to self regulate and shift oppression
- Develop base practices and skills to shift dynamics of racism and white supremacy
- Develop further understanding of their impact within the organizations and communities where they are working
- Understand burnout culture
- Anti-oppression work is a practice and not a training, how do we do ongoing work within a culture of burnout?
