Governing for Justice: Structuring our communities for equity, sovereignty and self-determination
To govern is to oversee the direction and guiding principles of a community. How a community is governed essentially shapes its equity, relationships, and sovereignty. Looking behind the patterns of inequity in our food systems, we find antiquated governing structures built by and for dominant classes. In this session, we will hear from visionary womxn and femmes who are influencing and building new forms of governance that represent marginalized perspectives and incorporate the resilient wisdom of equity, self-agency and collectivism.
