Hello Cultivating Justice community. My name is Dorothy and I’m joining Cultivating Justice to contribute to the conversation around food injustice and discuss one of the many ways in which racist policies create barriers for people of color in obtaining land rights and ownership. I am a student at Earlham College studying Women, Gender, and Sexualities Studies. I have spent my time unpacking the ways in which society marginalizes communities whether by class, race, or gender, and I am excited to enrich what I’ve learned through my work with Cultivating Justice. I also hope to connect to younger generations who have turned to farming as a way of seeking hope and stability in a fracturing world. Let’s create a conversation so that we can all work towards a more sustainable future.
