NESAWG It Takes A Region Conference
November 8, 2021 - November 13, 2021
Our Conference Theme is Resistance and Healing Amidst Crisis and Injustice. These past 13 months have challenged us in ways many couldn’t have imagined with multiple, intersecting crises that have laid bare and deepened the injustices BIPOC and frontline communities have always dealt with and provided ominous warning for climate change and other catastrophes that lay ahead. In this time of significant uncertainty mixed with tentative hope, we believe that the work of creating a sustainable, equitable and just farm and food system for all means that we must listen to the entire story. We need to hear the struggles, particularly the least visible ones, how we rise to meet them, and most importantly, what we can learn from all of it. Read more about our theme here.
Our annual conference is widely regarded as the conference for anyone doing food system change work in any Northeast state. Hundreds of practitioners convene not only workshops, plenaries, and networking, but to roll up their sleeves and do the real work needed to create a just and fair regional food system. Youth, academics, farmers, advocates, entrepreneurs, and organizers all find a home at NESAWG.
