Limited Capacity full

Given the lasting legacy of slavery and colonialism in relation to our agricultural and food systems, we seek to build upon agroecology’s holistic framework, but with an explicit focus on equity. Stone Barns Exchange Fellows are working together to define the term “agroequity,” as a means of tying together the principles of agroecology, food justice and intersectionality. These principles would put forth not just a term, but an approach to connecting movements and building coalitions across social change efforts, as they relate to vulnerable and under-resourced populations. This workshop will present the fellows' ideas on shaping “agroequity” and will engage participants in identifying existing frames, important concepts for inclusion, as well as next steps for sharing and building upon this framework within the larger food movement.
