On August 3rd and 4th, 2018 the Food Justice Lab hosted a group of scholar activists.
The two day workshop fostered discussion on the legacies of racial, gendered and economic marginalization in the food system and how the food justice and food sovereignty movements relate to the unique place based opportunities for reclaiming a right to food in Appalachia and the US South. Wish we could have had more time together but friendships were forged as we laid the foundation of what we hope to be a fruitful partnership in the coming years.
