If you haven’t already, please register for the FSNE 21-Day Racial Equity Habit Building Challenge. The Challenge has become an integral part of NAMA’s commitment to racial equity. Fisheries policies are rife with inequities that in many ways are rooted in a cultural history of racial inequities. These historical roots link communities around the world resulting in inequitable access to healthy, clean, fair food choices. It’s not a comfortable conversation, but I’m inviting you to lean into discomfort so that we can begin to transform our food systems by talking about and addressing instances of overt, covert, and systemic racism that exist throughout our land and sea-based food systems.
Plus, a National Seafood Council is taking shape, but whose interests will it serve?
Registration for the Local Catch Network Seafood Summit is open, there are plenty of event recordings to catch up on, and several funding opportunities right around the corner.
