GFJI’s Mission: The Growing Food and Justice for All Initiative is a new initiative aimed at dismantling racism and empowering low-income and communities of color through sustainable and local agriculture. This comprehensive network views dismantling racism as a core principal which brings together social change agents from diverse sectors working to bring about new, healthy and sustainable food systems and supporting and building multicultural leadership in impoverished communities throughout the world. The vision for this initiative is to establish a powerful network of individuals, organizations and community-based entities all working toward a food secure and just world.
Request for proposals:
At this year’s Gathering breakout sessions, we’d like to take a step away from traditional presentations in order to pursue our goals of group learning, dialogue and equipping ourselves with the skills it takes to facilitate our own personal development and the empowerment of our organizations and communities.
We are looking for confident and passionate facilitators able to create the conditions that activate the minds, bodies, and spirits of the individuals in a group.
