Event description: 

CBEY is excited to host a conversation with HEAL Food Alliance Director Navina Khanna about HEAL’s national multi-sector, multi-racial coalition of 60 organizations working to radically transform our current food system where profits are valued over people and the planet. 

The HEAL coalition is Anchored by the Food Chain Workers Alliance, the National Black Food and Justice AllianceReal Food Generation, and the Union of Concerned Scientists. Their work is led by their members, who represent over 2 million rural and urban farmers, ranchers, fishers, farm and food chain workers, indigenous groups, scientists, public health advocates, policy experts, community organizers, and activists. Together, these groups are building a movement to transform our food and farm systems from the current extractive economic model towards community control, care for the land, local economies, meaningful labor, and healthful communities nationwide, while supporting the sovereignty of all living beings.

Navina will join CBEY Resident Fellow Tagan Engel, to discuss The HEAL Food Alliance 10 point “Platform for Real Food”, and their approach to organizing and building power for real change.
