The 2019 Racial Equity Challenge starts on April 1st!
As part of their commitment to racial equity and food justice, the Food Solutions New England (FSNE) network is dedicated to normalizing conversations about the role of racism in shaping our food systems (local, regional, national and global).
We believe it benefits us all to have greater collective capacity and courage to identify and address the different ways that bias, prejudice, privilege, and oppression show up in our work and lives.
This Challenge was originally developed by Dr. Eddie Moore, Jr. and Debby Irving and has been adapted by Food Solutions New England with support from the Interaction Institute for Social Change. The challenge is designed to create dedicated time and space to build more effective social justice habits, particularly those dealing with issues of race, power, privilege, and leadership. Participation in an activity like this helps us to discover how racial injustice and social injustice impact the food system, to connect with one another, to identify ways to dismantle racism and become better leaders for a more just, equitable food system
