We believe that food and water must be treated as basic human rights and we uphold the internationally recognized principles of food sovereignty.
We honor Mother Earth, value biodiversity, and support ecological farming and fishing practices that protect the Earth, animals, and people.
We support movement away from the dominant, corporate-controlled food system, which is shaped by systems of power and oppression. Our solutions must dismantle systemic food injustice rooted in race, class, and gender oppression.
We respect people and other forms of life over profits. We honor everyone’s work in the food system, including unpaid, underpaid, and devalued labor. We work to honor our human commonalities and restore traditional ways of growing, preparing, sharing, and eating food as a community.
