Housing Struggles and Food Movements

Building Greater Solidarity Across Geographic and Issue Divides Through Land and Labor

This panel brings together organizers working in California’s rural and urban contexts, tackling diverse issues (urban gardens for houseless folks, increasing resources for POC farmers, affordable housing, pesticide regulation, cultural memory and resistance), all linked by issues of land and labor. While it is obvious that land access and control – whether for housing or for food production – remains a challenge for working class people in all places, this session will explore how specifically and tangibly people in rural and urban areas might be able to extend solidarity in support for each others’ struggles over land and rights for working people.
