In times when we feel overwhelmed by our political process, how can we use our collective energies and gathering places to galvanize the food movement for larger systems change? And how can we best nourish ourselves and our neighbors, while fighting for the causes we care about? Eaters, voters, and good food advocates can shift the political culture in this country by going beyond voting with our forks to taking action in our communities. Join CUESA and SPUR for a conversation with two community leaders who, through their work in food, have pounded the pavement, knocked on doors, driven policy change, and organized to help people claim their power. Learn from their first-hand experience overcoming challenges, and discover tangible ways you can get involved in 2020 and beyond.
