Mission Statement

"The purpose of resilience is not to build the capacity to endure more harm. We build resilience to be more skillful in confronting the systems that have harmed us.”

These words, from Dignity and Power Now, inspire and ground this symposium. This conference seeks to explore the tensions between the food system that already exists and how we can build a more justice-, human-, and earth-oriented food system. We will bring together visionaries, painting the picture of what it means to build a food system that is resilient to human and natural disruptions and also oriented towards access to sustaining, culturally appropriate food for all.

Thanks to our sponsors!
