Join us on Sunday, April 7, at the Du Nord Craft Spirits cocktail room in South Minneapolis.
Eat for Equity and Land Stewardship Project are teaming up to raise funds and awareness for LSP’s racial equity work in our food and farming system. LSP believes that every person—of any race, rural or urban, old and young—has value that can’t be earned or taken away. We believe healthy rural communities and sustainable agriculture are not possible without addressing racism and racial disparities in our communities and valuing the wisdom and contributions of people from all backgrounds.
We’ll talk about how LSP is working with members and allies across the movement to advance racial justice on the land and how you can support this work. Members from LSP’s racial justice organizing cohorts will join us to talk about how LSP is working to organize white rural Midwesterners to lead with their values and educate their community members about the legacy and impacts of structural racism.
This is an open-house style event in a local distillery. Drinks will be available for purchase. All welcome! Come by anytime from 5 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., with presentations from LSP members and staff throughout the night.
You’ll feast on a delicious meal provided by Eat for Equity and sourced from LSP members. Food will be available for a donation, and we invite you to give any amount that is generous to you. There will be halal, vegan, and gluten-free menu options so that all can share.
