Critical Discussions in Food Systems Co-hosts: Friends of the ATC!

Colloquium | February 1 | 4-6 p.m. | Morgan Hall, Morgan Lounge

 Friends of the ATC

Join the discussion organized by the Nicaragua Center for Community Action, SOCLA-North America, and the Task Force on the Americas to welcome the Asociación de Trabajadores del Campo (ATC) and voices from Via Campesina in a conversation on food sovereignty and agroecology!

On this tour, the ATC’s Marlen Sanchez and Dionys Melgara will be speaking and exchanging on the importance of La Via Campesina and other social movements pushing for food sovereignty in response to neoliberal capitalist policies that destroy Mother Earth and communities of peasants, indigenous peoples, and people of color around the world. Agroecology, grounded in ancestral knowledge, native seeds, and horizontal learning exchanges, is what can achieve food sovereignty and cool the planet.
