Food Justice in Utah & Reconnecting to the Land

WITH DIYA SHAH (SHE/THEY) 

WEDNESDAY | May 5, 2021 | 6 PM-8 PM | VIA ZOOM
Free to all Womxn, Femmes, and Non-Binary Persons of Color

Join us for an interactive presentation of exploring how food is a multidimensional lens to understand the self, connect with our communities, and provide solutions for societal and planetary crises. Diya Shah, a local food advocate, shares with us their graduate and community work in learning how Communities of Color have long used food and connection to land as a means for resilience, resistance, and healing. We will learn about the work of decolonizing what food and land mean to us in our daily lives, and how we can practice a mindset of advocacy and connection for the future of our world.

Preparation & Supplies Needed for this Workshop:

  • Set up your device in a private and comfortable location
  • A journal or sketchbook for note-taking, thoughts, and impressions

No amount is too small and we truly appreciate your support.
