Racial Equity in Food Systems Work: Beginning the Journey (Webinar)


For extension educators interested in integrating racial equity into their food systems work

Hosted by the eXtension working group on Undoing Inequality in the Food System which is part of the eXtension Community, Local and Regional Community of Practice and the Michigan State University Center for Regional Food Systems


A presentation intended to inspire Extension educators who want to make racial equity a more intentional part of their work – and an introduction to resources and tools to help do so.

In this webinar, we will begin to discuss what racial equity training is and how it benefits Extension work. We will also suggest additional resources and tools useful to those who want to bring racial equity training to their organizations.

Shorlette Ammons of North Carolina’s Center for Environmental Farming Systems will introduce webinar participants to tools and language used in racial equity training. This webinar will be a helpful introduction to greater conversations and work surrounding racial equity and food access. 

This is the first in a series of webinars that will explore the role that racial equity plays in our food system.
