Changing the World Through Food Systems: A Call for Radical Food Activism

February 20, 2018 @ 5:00 PM - 6:30 PM

Seed the Commons director Nassim Nobari will speak of the importance of grassroots activism to reclaim our food systems from corporate control, while offering a critique of the food movement’s celebration of animal husbandry and the increased popularity of grazing. These stem from a Eurocentric worldview that sees the absence of farm animals as an inherent lack, and reproduce colonial dynamics. She invites us to view plant-based food systems as vibrant, dynamic and wholly sufficient, and will speak of the promotion of veganic farming as key for social justice and animal liberation.

This talk is free, open to the public and followed by a reception–if you’re in SoCal, let’s talk about changing the world!

Venue: UCLA Glorya Kaufman Hall, Glorya Kaufman Dance Theater (Room 208)
