2019 Ideas Matter Series on the Philosophy of Food - Latinx Food Justice

Latinx Food Justice: Bringing Labor Back In
Dr. Ron Mize, Associate Professor of Language, Culture, and Society

Far too many conversations on food justice leave out one important element the labor responsible for cultivating, harvesting, and transporting food from fields to table. The central role of Latinx labor cannot be understated in the food justice equation and I will share my work with farmworker justice organizations and movements to bring Latinx laborers to the table.
