This Zoom session is from 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. EST: Combining Scholarship and Activism: An Intergenerational Exchange. Information about the session and registration is HERE. Bob Gottlieb and I will address how to combine food policy scholarship and activism in discussion with two much younger colleagues, Ivonne Quiroz and Lo Anderson.
In April, I posted a collection of coalitions of organizations working on issues in agriculture, food, and nutrition. Since then, several coalition groups have asked to be included on the list.
Here is the updated coalition list. These are organized alphabetically in two sections: United States and International.
Why did I put this list together? In unity there is strength.
Contact each together, combine resources, work jointly on issues of common interest. I can’t think of a better way to gain political power to achieve advocacy goals.
