To govern is to oversee the direction and control of a community. How a community is governed essentially shapes its equity, relationships, and sovereignty. Looking behind the patterns of inequity in our food systems, we find antiquated governing structures built by and for dominant classes.
On Thursday, November 19th at 5pm, we had a wonderful conversation with womxn and femmes who are influencing and building new forms of governance that represent marginalized perspectives and incorporate the resilient wisdom of equity, self-agency and collectivism.
