General info
Growing Food and Justice for All Initiative (GFJI) is an 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.

Conference/Gathering:
Participants include: farmers, academics, chefs, policy makers, organizers, and people from countless other walks of life. Our conference theme for 2016 is Let’s Scale it Up! Growing Food and Farmers: Best practices in growing, distribution and community building. Workshops will be hands-on, interactive and will showcase the work being done locally in the Milwaukee area as well as nationally and internationally. The conference is in November and registration opens around August.
