An online conversation on food sovereignty

Sign up now to join UUSC for a compelling conversation via webinar with several food sovereignty experts. Speakers will include Wendy Flick, manager of UUSC’s Haiti Program; Chavannes Jean-Baptiste, founder and leader of MPP; and Fred Pearce, author of The Land Grabbers. The Get-Together takes place Sunday, March 30, 2014, 3pm (Central Time). You can participate as an individual.

PS. Wondering what exactly “food sovereignty” means? In the book Fault Lines: Views across Haiti’s Divide, Beverly Bell describes it as “the belief that every person has the right to make decisions about, produce and consume their own local, healthy and culturally-appropriate food.”
