Keynote by Edgar Franks, Farmworker Organizer, Community to Community (C2C)
“The Legacy We Inherit: Luchando por una Vida AgroEcológica”
Edgar Franks organizes farmworkers with C2C in Bellingham, WA. In his keynote, he will reflect on agroecology as a way of life and share their work to ensure the needs of migrant farmworkers are represented on the path toward food sovereignty. Amidst the current political context of deportation raids on workers at the backbone of our food system, we will uplift a liberatory vision that connects food justice and immigrant justice. Join us to celebrate farmworkers who are building community self-determination!
This event is wheelchair accessible. Free childcare will be available for kids aged 2-11 from 6:30 – 9pm.
