AUA Food Sovereignty Action Days: calling all community gardens and food sovereignty projects in Chicago!
Food sovereignty is “the right of peoples to healthy and culturally appropriate food produced through ecologically sound and sustainable methods, and their right to define their own food and agriculture systems.” (Source: U.S. Food Sovereignty Alliance,
AUA is organizing Action Days throughout the growing season to connect community-based food sovereignty projects like community gardens with needed people power, to promote self-determination in the local food system.
AUA will host SIX Food Sovereignty Action Days in 2020.
