A Force To Be Reckoned With Part 6: BIPOC Womxn and Femmes: Navigating Vermont’s Food System

Thursday, October 15, 2020 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm
Online Webinar

The purpose of this panel is to support, celebrate, and reflect on the contributions of BIPOC womxn and femmes in Vermont’s food system. Together we explore their experiences as business owners, earth tenders, healers, faces of organizations, and advocates. Additionally, we aim to build community, honor the dynamic spaces that these folx are creating specifically for marginalized Vermonters, and unpack the inequities that exist at the crossroads between race and gender within Vermont’s food system.
