Two powerful voices from the food sovereignty/food justice movement will be speaking in dialogue this Thursday (Oct 8) at 2 pm on Zoom as part of the annual E. F. Schumacher Lectures at the Schumacher Center for a New Economics.
Winona LaDuke is an environmentalist, economist, author, and prominent Native American activist working to restore and preserve indigenous cultures and lands. Leah Penniman is an educator, farmer/peyizan, author, and food justice activist from Soul Fire Farm in Grafton, NY. Both have been speakers on this series in previous years, and they’ll be reflecting on their original talks given current political, economic, and social realities and then commenting on each other’s work. Registration is free. A question and answer period will follow initial presentations. If you are unable to attend, a recording of the event will be available.
