We are excited to launch a new bilingual webinar series, Bridging Knowledge for Equitable Food Systems. This initiative is a crucial part of FSC’s broader commitment to address structural and systemic barriers that prevent Black and Indigenous communities from achieving improved health, well-being, and food sovereignty.
Bridging Knowledge for Equitable Food Systems will be prioritizing the voices and perspectives of communities that have historically been marginalized and excluded from the decision-making processes that impact their food systems.
The webinars will provide a platform to share cross-cultural knowledge and strategies, with the goal of increasing access to resources and building capacity within the most disenfranchised communities in our food systems.
By bringing together diverse voices and perspectives, we hope that this webinar series will spark meaningful conversations and inspire action towards a food system that is more just, healthy, and sustainable. We hope you’ll join us on this journey!
