Dismantling Racism in the Food System – Intensive Leadership Training


  • Bridgeport Arts Center 1200 W. 35th Street Chicago, IL (map)

Hosted by Urban Growers Collective.

An understanding to dismantling racism principles is critical to the success of any urban agriculture project. This three-day workshop will introduce a framework to better understand how racism and privilege manifests on an individual, cultural and institutional level, as well as provide space to reflect upon ways to create projects that empower low-income and communities of color through sustainable, local agriculture.

We will be discussing recent challenges and opportunities in the food movement world both from a local, in your community, perspective and from the national and international food sovereignty arena. Designed to build a community of leaders who are enabled to take action and provide intensive training and dialogue that facilitates anti-racism, with the hope that leaders take food justice actions in our own programs and neighborhoods.

Thursday, February 28th – Saturday, March 2, 10:00am-4:00pm (all days)
Bridgeport Art Center, 1200 W. 35th Street (enter at Racine entrance – Dial UGC)
