Shane Bernardo

Uprooting Racism Planting Justice/Detroit Equity Action Lab/Swimming in the Detroit River
Facilitator/Fellow/Founding Member
Detroit, MI
Shane Bernardo is a 2017 Stone Barns Exchange Fellow.  Shane grew up working in his family’s grocery store on the west side of Detroit. For more than 13 years, Shane’s family helped cultivate a nourishing environment for the community’s Southeast Asian, West African and Afro-Caribbean ethnic groups by providing a space for culturally relevant foods, recipes, stories and traditions to be shared. As a result, Shane also developed a heightened awareness of the social, economic and political conditions his family had in common with other families within a largely stratified community. As a lifelong resident of Detroit, Shane has been active in grassroots food justice efforts, most recently as a facilitator for Uprooting Racism Planting Justice. Shane has also been a fellow with the Detroit Equity Action Lab and a founding member of Swimming in the Detroit River, an environmental justice storytelling collective.
