Our world faces a crisis. BORDERS AND BARRIERS have appeared everywhere in our external world. People from dominant groups silence others and speak for entire communities through codified systems. People of color are reduced to being seen as consumers of food instead of as major contributors to the realm of food and agriculture.  Old knowledgeable gardeners have become perpetual students of newly educated  agricultural experts. PLEASE COME SHARE HOW OPPRESSION AND RACISM IS WORKING IN YOUR LIFE AND COMMUNITY. We will get clear on commonly used terms i.e RACISM,POWER,PRIVILEGE,PREJUDICE,IDENTITY,POVERTY ,FOOD,SEED, FOOD JUSTICE, spatial racism internalized racism and their meanings and examine how institutions can perpetuate racism in our society. WE’LL TALK IT OUT,DRAW IT OUT and DRUM IT OUT! PLEASE BRING NOTEBOOKS, ANCESTRAL TRINKETS, WATER, TISSUES, DRUMS AND SHAKERS.

*Community council is a traditional method of connecting and exploring individual and systemic issues. In community council people are encouraged to speak from the heart not the intellect. The symbolism of the circle establishes no hierarchy or dominance
