Just Food seeks proposals for both: Workshops, which are 90 minutes long, are offered once during the morning or afternoon session, and will be held in classrooms that range from 30-100 people in capacity; and
Campaign Action Sessions, which are 45 minutes long, and will be offered twice (back-to-back) during the lunch period, in classrooms that range from 30-100 people in capacity. Campaign Action Sessions discuss a current campaign for equitable food policy, and give attendees a concrete way to take immediate action or get involved.
- Highlight community-driven efforts to tackle racial and economic inequities in our food system
- Feature diverse speakers who don’t often have a mainstream platform
- Offer concrete tools, skills, and learning opportunities relevant to grassroots groups
- Educate attendees about current strategies and opportunities to advocate for equitable food policy
Please note that Just Food does not have a budget to pay speaker honorariums or to cover travel expenses. All speakers are, however, invited to attend the full conference day as our guests. (Tickets cost $65 each and include breakfast and lunch.)
For questions or more information, contact Robin Burger at firstname.lastname@example.org. On behalf of all of us at Just Food, thank you for your interest and we look forward to reading your proposal!
If you don’t have your own workshop to propose, but have a great idea for a speaker or a topic that you’d like to see at the Just Food Conference, please submit your suggestions here.
