Keynote from Soul Fire Farm: “Uprooting Racism, Seeding Sovereignty”

This virtual keynote address is delivered by Soul Fire Farm’s Co-Founder and Farm Manager, Leah Penniman, and closes with a performance by world-renowned poet, Soul Fire Farm’s Program Manager, Naima Penniman. The keynote storytelling weaves the history and structural realities of racial injustice in the food system, with movement strategies past and present of frontline communities mobilizing for food and land sovereignty. The virtual keynote will be followed by a live Q&A with Soul Fire Farm’s Food Justice Coordinator and Kitchen Magician, Brooke Bridges. Learn how we can help build a food system based on justice, dignity, and abundance for all members of our local and global community.

This and other Seminar programs will connect participants to the climate & food justice movement, equipping them with skills to take action throughout the year as individuals and communities. There will be abundant opportunities for intergenerational dialogue during the Seminar, as well as dedicated time for youth and young adult participants and BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, & people of color) participants to connect with one another. This year’s Intergenerational Spring Seminar, “All In for Climate Justice: Food Equity and Sustainability,” is in partnership with UU Ministry for Earth, as part of Spring for Change: A Season of Sacred Activism focused on the theme “Pathways to Healing and Regeneration.” Registration is open through March 18 and features flexible rates for equity and accessibility. Please join us!

This work is made possible by the generosity of member congregations and individual donors.
