The year 2020 has been the year of crisis piling on top of crisis: fires, pandemics, police brutality, the threat of a stolen election, and decline of our democratic traditions. These crises have made evident the brutal exploitation of the ecosystems and workers upon which the food system is built. Returning to business as normal will only reinforce the existing inequities and damage that the food system has caused to our planet and societies. Instead we must develop a new people-centered and ecological path forward, in which we retake for the common good our food and farms back from the oligopolies that control them.
In this keynote session, leaders from a variety of fields as featured in the book Bite Back: People Taking on Corporations and Winning will discuss the new directions, systems, and alliances that the food and farm movement must make to re-think, re-imagine, and re-create the way we produce, distribute and consume food in America.
