We at Food+Tech Connect stand in solidarity with the Black community against systemic racism. Built on the exploitation of Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC), our industry – from farm to fork – has an opportunity and imperative to chart a more equitable and diverse future.
We have compiled the following list of resources to help you learn about systemic racism in our food industry and how we might work to dismantle it. We have also featured lists of food and farm businesses and organizations for you to support. This list is by no means complete. We will be working to update it regularly, so please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any resources, organizations or initiatives you would like to see added.
Special thanks to Niyeti Shah MPH (Associate Director, Milken Institute Center for Public Health), Athena Roesler MPH (Associate Director, Milken Institute Center for Public Health) and Diane Kim (Associate, Milken Institute Center for Public Health) for their help with compiling this list.
