2019 Food Justice Summit Call for Co-Creation
Are you passionate about creating a just food system in Minnesota? Do you have ideas, skills, knowledge, or a vision to share with other passionate people from across the state? Help us create a meaningful and successful 2019 Food Justice Summit by contributing your voice, and submit this form to lead a session. The Summit is the largest food-focused gathering in the state with an expected attendance of over 600 this year.

The Summit provides space for learning, immersion, relationship building, and dialogue focused on the Minnesota food system. Solutions to the complex issues of our current food system cannot be solved individually, but rather with collective action. Whether you're a farmer, dietician, community organizer, researcher, policy wonk, or food shelf staff, this is the conference for you! We all have something to give and something to learn and invite you to co-create the contents of this Summit with us. An emphasis will be placed on submissions led by and highlighting BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) and farming communities and the connection to restoring healthy food systems.

We are intentionally committed to making this Summit inclusive and accessible and are working towards finalizing our budget - please don't let financial constraints hold you back from creating with us! We have a limited amount of funds available to aid presenters if finances are a barrier.

Learn more about the Summit (November 4-6, 2019 at the Duluth Entertainment Convention Center or DECC) here: www.foodjusticesummit.com
