[VIRTUAL] Creating Food Justice, Shmita Speaker Series

Date: May 16, 2021
Time: 10:00 am - 11:00 am

All year Ekar in Denver is partnering with local and national organizations to explore the connections between the ancient Biblical agricultural tradition of Shmita (“release”) -- the Sabbatical year -- and contemporary issues of economic, environmental and food justice. Learn from grass-roots movement leaders and activists about what you can do to create a just community. The next Shmita year begins this August.

This session we will hear from Damien Thompson, PhD, Co-founder of Frontline Farming in Colorado and Director of the Center for Food Justice and Healthy Communities and Paul Sherman, Outreach Manager, MAZON.
