In the social justice movement, we talk a lot about food justice. Meanwhile, family-scale farmers struggle financially, and structural violence keeps farm and food system workers unorganized and poorly paid, with people of color at the bottom. Many social justice groups lack internal policies to ensure full participation and respect for everyone who wishes to contribute. Let’s talk about what fairness means and how to make it a reality for our movement. Under the pressures of farming, serving food, or running a nonprofit, folks may not learn relevant laws and regulations, document well-intentioned practices, or go beyond legal to what is fair. The purpose of this workshop is to provide the information and documentation to live up to the claim of social justice.
