“I tried to provide the best food for my son, free of carcinogens and pesticides, but it wasn’t available in my neighborhood. It wasn’t that I couldn’t afford it, it just wasn’t available. We had to travel several miles outside to buy food to make our meals.”—
LaDonna Redmond, a longtime urban farmer from the west side of Chicago and a senior program associate at the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy
Redmond is organizing Food + Justice = Democracy, a conference that will bring together communities of color and tribal nations to craft a national food justice platform.
