Register Here! Join us as we welcome new guests and returning speakers from our 6 part webinar series – A Force to Be Reckoned With: Womxn and Femmes in VT’s Food System.
Reflecting on the insightful conversations of our webinar series, we have been thinking about the importance of governance and decided NOW was the right time to invite a courageous and fresh conversation on how to build community governance that supports justice and equity.
Register here to join the Governing for Justice this Thursday at 5pm.
When: Thursday 11/19 5pm
What: Governing for Justice: Structuring our communities for equity, sovereignty and self-determination
To govern is to oversee the direction and guiding principles of a community. How a community is governed essentially shapes its equity, relationships, and sovereignty. Looking behind the patterns of inequity in our food systems, we find antiquated governing structures built by and for dominant classes. In this session, we will hear from visionary womxn and femmes who are influencing and building new forms of governance that represent marginalized perspectives and incorporate the resilient wisdom of equity, self-agency and collectivism.
