I just presented at the Phat Beets Farmer's Market as part of their Food N' Justice Workshop series. It was a small audience, but they were very engaged and readily drew connections to other important food justice work.

Being surrounded by fresh produce from local farmers and farmers of color was very empowering. It felt great to be able to bring the message to people in a context in which they could readily take action - just by walking a few feet away and buying fresh organic strawberries for dessert (instead of ice cream). Thanks to Phat Beets for hosting us. They have farmers' markets every Tuesday at North Oakland Children's Hospital, Wednesday at Saint Martin de Porres Produce Stand, and Saturday at North Oakland Arlington Medical Center. They also run a fantastic Beet Box CSA program. Video of the presentation coming soon!
