FOOD JUSTICE BOOK DISCUSSION

August 28 - 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

FOOD JUSTICE BOOK DISCUSSION

You are invited to join Attorneys for Animals and VegMichigan as we continue making connections between veganism and the broader social justice movement with our next Book Club meeting on Sunday, August 28, 1:00-2:30 PM (EDT). We will discuss the book Food Justice: A Primer, edited by Saryta Rodriguez. We ask that you read all or part of the book prior to the discussion, and come prepared with at least one question the reading brought up, and one thing you learned or that resonated with you.

“Food Justice: A Primer is a collection of essays by activists, academics, farmers, and others involved in the Food Justice Movement examining food justice and food sovereignty from a variety of angles. These essays range in scope and tone from personal, hands-on experiences to macro-level observations of how communities’ ability to both access healthful, justly-produced food and determine for themselves how they are fed can be improved upon, including efforts currently underway toward these ends.

For too long, the Food Justice Movement has been senselessly divided between those who focus on the rights of humans and those who uphold the rights of nonhumans. In truth, the most just and efficient way forward to promote this cause is for these communities to come together and work in solidarity with one another, as myriad individuals and organizations around the world demonstrate with their hard work and careful analysis. This book aims to illustrate why this is necessary while confirming that it is possible, in hopes of inspiring further cooperation and collaboration between seemingly disparate causes under the umbrella of Food Justice.” (from the back cover)
