Local Food and Farms Co-ops

Year: 2021

The opening Keynote panel at the Assembly features a conversation of food sovereignty and a Just Transition in our pandemic times with speakers from across the continent. We are honoured to open our 12th Annual Assembly with Dawn Morrison of the Working Group on Indigenous Food Sovereignty from Coast Salish territory on the west coast of so-called Canada as well as Kali Akuno and Sacajawea Saki Hall of Cooperation Jackson from Jackson, Mississippi. The speakers discuss what food sovereignty looks like in their communities, coalition building across nations and movements, and mobilizing to activate the changes we need to see for a Just Transition away from an extractive economy to sustainable, long-term, community-driven solutions.
