Are you working to fix DC’s broken food system? Do you have a passion for fighting for food justice? Then come network with other individuals and organizations who share your passion at the DC Food Systems Organizing Workgroup New Member Orientation and Community Brainstorm Training. This conversation is for anyone who’s interested in organizing their communities around food justice, or who wants to better lead conversations about the food system with their neighbors, coworkers, or faith community.
The DC Food Systems Organizing Workgroup is a group of individuals and organizations who are working build a Food Policy Council in DC. See our previous blog post about what we’ve done over the past year. Right now we are reaching out to people that share the vision of creating a nourishing community in which all Washington, D.C. residents can enjoy a nutritious, safe, and culturally appropriate diet provided by a local sustainable food system that fosters health, equity, interdependence, and self-reliance.
The New Member Orientation and Community Brainstorm Training is part of this outreach effort. The orientation is from 6:00 – 7:00, we’ll take a quick break, and then from 7:00 – 8:30 we’ll be doing a training on how to facilitate discussions about the food system in your own communities. Learn more about what the community brainstorms are here.
Please join us, and share the flyer (http://goo.gl/LYfNk) or this email with colleagues, friends, family, and neighbors you think might be interested.
Let’s get the conversation started and ignite a DC food revolution today!
