Disparity to Parity: Balancing the Scales of Agricultural Policy for Racial Equity & Climate Resilience
Earth care requires wise agricultural and food policies that mandate fair pricing and update supply management to build a racially just, economically empowered, and climate resilient food system. In short: moving from Disparity to Parity.
Please join the National Family Farm Coalition, Federation of Southern Cooperatives, American University Center for Environment, Community, and Equity, and our partners in a roundtable conversation to dig deeper into the history of disparities in our food system and policy ideas that can move us toward achieving parity. This will be the first in a year-long series.
