Food First Meeting: The Trump Presidency and Land & Farmworker Justice

February 15, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

What does the Trump presidency mean for farmworkers? 
What does it mean for the food justice & food sovereignty movements?
How can people support the struggles of farmworkers under these new conditions?

Everyone is welcome to attend Food First’s monthly community meeting the third Wednesday of every month at 6:30pm in La Peña’s lounge!
Join renowned farmworker, organizer, and Executive Director of Community to Community Development Rosalinda Guillen and award-winning journalist and author David Bacon as they discuss the current political implications of the Trump presidency and his immigration enforcement proposals, opportunities for organizing within and across the food, agriculture, and labor movements, and preview their upcoming chapter in Food First’s upcoming book, Land Justice: Re-imagining Land, Food, and the Commons in the United States.


Food First envisions a world in which all people have access to healthy, ecologically produced, and culturally appropriate food. After 40 years of analysis of the global food system, we know that making this vision a reality involves more than technical solutions—it requires political transformation. That’s why Food First supports activists, social movements, alliances, and coalitions working for systemic change. Our work—including action-oriented research, publications, projects and Food Sovereignty Tours—gives you the tools to understand the global challenges, build your local movement, and engage with the global movement for food sovereignty.
