Registration now open for NESAWG's 2015 Conference - Putting MOVE in the Movement
Civil rights, labor, women’s rights—the movements that transformed our world can give us insight on ways to accelerate food systems change.  What can we learn from leaders past and present?  How can we better organize our work, our networks, our message, our media? At this year’s NESAWG conference, Nov 12-14 in Saratoga Spring, NY, learn and strategize with farm and food systems practitioners across the region—from farmers to researchers to policymakers—as we work to build a movement and realize the change we want to see.  

Shirley Sherrod, a longtime civil rights activist and advocate for family farms and food justice, will deliver the keynote speech, addressing the conference theme: Putting Move in the Movement. The conference also boasts a diverse range of speakers from across the 12-state NESAWG region, presenting on issues impacting all corners of the food system. Check out the conference website ( to learn more about the conference and register. Hope to see you there!
