The Fight for the Future of Food

On October 23, 2019, the University of San Francisco hosted five leading African food sovereignty activists for a night of discussion, food, and networking.

We were fortunate to hear from Victoria Adongo (Peasant Farmers Association of Ghana), Mariam Bassey-Orovwuje (Alliance for Food Sovereignty in Africa), Dr. Million Belay (Alliance for Food Sovereignty in Africa), Mariam Mayet (African Centre for Biosafety) and Bernard Guri (Center for Indigenous Knowledge and Organizational Development) on how peasant farmer and activist organizations are forging new agricultural futures across the continent.

I’ll be sharing more thoughts and photos soon, but for now, a recording of the event can be found here.

A big thanks to Dr. Jahi Chappell (Food First) for moderating the discussion, and to co-organizers the 11th Hour Project and Drs. Brian Dowd-Uribe and Jeffrey Paller.
