The Racial Equity in Agriculture Lab (R.E.A.L.) presents

Building Beyond Nice Racism: Catalyzing Institutional Change in the Food System

This virtual learning series in 2022, led by the Racial Equity in Agriculture Lab (R.E.A.L.) and hosted by the Center for Food Systems and Community Transformation, is open to student, faculty, organizational, agency, and community leaders who are seeking a deeper understanding of structural and institutional racism in our food system. The series is designed to provide a pathway to action to help dismantle the attitudes, practices, and structures that hold racism in place as a step towards creating a more equitable food system that works for everyone.

This five-part series runs January-May 2022 and will include two-hour sessions from 10:00-12:00 Eastern Time on the following dates: January 25, February 22, March 22, April 26, and May 24.

Please visit our website for more information about registration and cost. There is maximum capacity for the program so be sure to register if you plan to attend. Registration is requested by January 20, 2022.
