DIGGING DEEPER

Race & Equity in Farming

I’ve been on quite a journey the last few years learning about race & equity issues including formal trainings with CEI, my own reading, and conversations with white friends & allies. Only recently have I had the opportunity to bring that lens to my farming community. It was great to meet so many POC farmers last week at the Farming While Black panel discussion event. Looking forward to continuing the conversations we started there and hopefully finding some opportunities to collaborate. Just thought I’d post a few resources that have been helpful to me in case folks are interested in learning more…

Books:

  • Waking Up White, Debbie Irving
  • Mindful of Race, Ruth King
  • White Fragility, Robin DiAngelo
  • The New Jim Crow, Michelle Alexander

 

Farming & Food Justice

 

Lots more to learn! Look forward to updating the list on a regular basis!!
