Taking Root: A Southwest Sustainable Food Summit

Taking Root: A Southwest Sustainable Food Summit will be the first youth food justice convergence in the history of the Southwest —uniting over 150 high school students, college students, and other young allies for three days. This event will unite a diverse coalition of young leaders across lines of age, race, class and geography, ignite food justice organizing and activism throughout the Southwest with new ideas, tactics and opportunities, and shine a light on this diverse, youth-driven movement. The aim of Taking Root is to explore the current state of food systems and envision and plan for sustainable food systems on a campus, community, regional, and international level, by bringing together academic experts, activists, youth leaders, producers, and entrepreneurs to share their perspectives on the dynamics of interconnected food systems. The conference will be held at Arizona State University at the Tempe Campus in the Farmer Education Building. For more information and to register by February 4, visit usft.org/southwestsummit.
