Latinas in Food: Identities, Challenges and Impact

Latina leaders working in food and food justice encounter a range of different challenges and identity issues. Working within mainstream nonprofit organizations, existing government structures and media channels is complex. The persistent narrative that our community needs to be “taught” and “educated” versus acknowledging systemic issues and structural racism is also a prominent narrative we combat. Join us for a conversation on our journeys within food and how we came to our current paths. We’ll also have a roundtable discussion of our views on impact, cultural relevance, the intersectionality of food justice, considerations regarding equity, and self care.
