DEI and ANti-Racism Work
We must do better. This page is permanent. It's here to help keep us accountable for working to be anti-racist* and practice DEI** as an organization
We made a commitment to DEI in our Strategic Plan. As our Board and Staff learn, have tough conversations, and engage with resources, we will update this page.

Resources We Are Engaging with As Food Web Staff and Board Members
June 8th - US Food System Timeline
Did you learn something new from this resource? What was it?
Can you connect an event on the timeline to something in your daily life now in 2020? (i.e. who grows our food?, who owns farmland?, what is in the grocery store?)
Did anything in the timeline make you uncomfortable? or leave you with questions?
Future consideration: How does this discussion connect to our programs and our organization?
*What is "Anti-RacisT"?
"In a racist society, it is not enough to be non-racist, we must be anti-racist." - Angela Davis
Being anti-racist is:
(1) an active and everyday choice
(2) to be self-aware and to make change to expose and root out white supremacy, white-dominant culture, and unequal institutions and society.
This definition was paraphrased from this extensive resource page from the National Museum of African American History and Culture.
