Rise Up! CAGJ Summer School is a 6-session exploration of food sovereignty movements, situated in Northwest issues. We’ll learn about:(1) the impact of colonization on indigenous food and waterways, (2) the impact of Japanese internment on wealth and land distribution, and (3) displacement and migration caused by current agricultural systems in the US and globally.
Our goal is to develop an intersectional analysis on food sovereignty together in community. In order to practice anti-oppressive organizing and learning, we prioritize perspectives and voices of people of color and queer activists in the materials and discussions.
Details:- Rise Up! CAGJ Summer School is free and open to all!- Potluck Discussion 2nd Tuesday of Month (June 13, July 11, and August 8) - Field trips on a weekend each month TBD (likely 4th Saturdays)- All meeting locations TBD with participants - If you are interested but these particular times do not work for your schedule, please sign up anyway, and we will adjust if enough people request a change.
Commitment:In order to create a cohesive learning community, we ask participants to commit to attending all three discussion sessions and at least two field trips, to deepen your involvement in CAGJ during 2017, and to come with a readiness to learn and have fun while doing it!
