2019 Rural Justice Summit
March 29th to 30th
G is for Grassroots - How our Farm Bill strategies could inform inclusive participation and equity in the Green New Deal (3rd Floor, 11:30 AM to 1:30 PM)
After a brief discussion of lessons from the Rural Coalition’s grassroots farm bill and agriculture justice work, this action circle will engage all participants to identify concrete ways that we can advance equity and inclusion in Green New Deal framing and implementation. Can we bring people together under the pillars of “decarbonization, jobs and justice”? Can we ensure that those most impacted by climate change and extractive economic policies will be included in finding, and have access to, GND solutions?
Rural Coalition’s Director of Research and Evaluation will be participating in both Days:
Friday: Climate & Rural Resilience - Impacts and Solutions Track (SAAC 209, 10:00 AM to 1:30 PM)
Saturday: G is for Grassroots, Pop-up Meet-up (3rd Floor, 11:30 AM to 1:30 PM)
