Covid-19 Plows The Way: A Conversation On Transforming Our Food System

Covid-19 has heightened the significant flaws in our current food system; it doesn't support farmers, farmworkers, or consumers. It promotes agribusiness and policies that help the corporate food industry rather than small family farms. Now, more than ever, we need a major change.

We'll have an all-star lineup of experienced farmers and activists to discuss the injustices and extreme flaws in our current food system and to share a future vision. These panelists have worked in national and state policy, with coalitions and farmworker organizations, and on farms across the country. They bring expertise on organic versus conventional agriculture, food justice, and farm policy inequities and opportunities, and we're hoping you'll join the conversation.

Panelists include:

  • Elizabeth Henderson - Experienced organic farmer, Co-Chair of NOFA-NY Policy Committee, and President of the Board of Agricultural Justice Project
  • Xolotl Edgar Franx - WA State Political and Campaign Director of Families Unidas por la Justicia¬†
  • Richard Moore - Farmer, Los Jardines Institute¬†
  • Wes Gillingham - Mountainkeeper's Associate Director and co-founder, and a long-time organic farmer. Wes and his family run Wild Roots Farm, a small regenerative farm in the Catskill Mountains.¬†
