Feedback form is now closed.


Addressing the fundamental barriers to land access and security requires broad and deep collaboration among food producers, policymakers, workers, cultural leaders, environmental advocates, and more. It requires leaders in California to understand the history of land theft and displacement, and envision a better system - where land is stewarded in community rather than bought for private investment firms or large private corporations and consolidated or turned into warehouses. Join this session to learn more about existing advocacy efforts to address this systemic issue and develop future strategies to build political power.

This is PART 2 of our Land Access Series. To learn about the tools, resources, and steps you can take today to find access to land and achieve land security, join us for PART 1 on Monday at 1pm. (see schedule)
