Join the PVGrows Network to learn from local and regional efforts and craft strategies for action on the urgent and timely topics of immigration, food access, and land access through a series of speakers and discussions. Keynote speakers from Vermont's Migrant Justice will discuss their Milk with Dignity Campaign, which calls on corporations to take responsibility for the farmworker rights abuses in their supply chains. Workshops and discussions will focus on: approaches to supporting food system workers in the Pioneer Valley during this time of heightened stress and fear for foreign-born residents; food access, with an emphasis on community responses to the suspension of the Healthy Incentives Program and the threats to SNAP in the Farm Bill reauthorization process; and the challenges of land access for urban, rural, and immigrant farmers, recognizing the long history of enslavement and racial discrimination that created and maintain patterns of land and wealth ownership.
