A Force To Be Reckoned With Part 5: Impactful Structural Change, Land Sovereignty, and Reparations

Thursday, October 8, 2020 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm
Online Webinar

In this panel we explore the different approaches to building land sovereignty in Vermont. Because access to land is central to identity, culture, food production, and wealth creation, land theft has long been a tool of oppression against marginalized communities. These leaders are building alternative land-access models to strengthen their communities, increase local food security, right past wrongs, and bring lasting change to the state of Vermont.
