Young Farmers Racial Equity Toolkit

Anti-Racism Work | Food Justice

National Young Farmers Coalition - National Young Farmers Coalition represents, mobilizes, and engages young farmers to ensure their success.

This toolkit is a starting point. It aims to orient and incite members toward preliminary consciousness-raising and direct action. This toolkit does not detail a universally applicable pathway toward resolving pervasive racialized oppression; it is an initial resource for people who are overwhelmed by the breadth and depth of the problem, and need help determining how to start dismantling racism in their communities.
