Power of Narrative: Creating An Equitable Food & Farm Bill

April 19 @ 2:30 pm 4:00 pm

Join ​”Power of Narrative: Creating An Equitable Food & Farm Bill​” a virtual film screening event marking the culmination of a collective farm bill campaign and uplifting BIPOC voices in food and farming.

The farm bill platform was informed by a diverse group of over 300 food and farm sector participants of all races, with outreach efforts focused on Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) working in food and farming sectors. Coalition members include Black Farmers United NYS, Equity Advocates, and Food for the Spirit. Northeast Farmers of Color Land Trust and Race Forward have joined us as co-hosts of this event. 

The virtual event will begin with a short film that uplifts several BIPOC voices and perspectives in food and farming followed by guest speakers who will offer brief remarks. The individuals whose stories are featured in the film include Adamaah Grayse, Bryana James Hassan, Chantel Kemp, Charles Madlock, Pamela James, Ruby Olisemeka, and Tamika Dunkley.
