Dear friends,
 
Last month, I spoke at the POC: Food Justice, Advocacy and Animal Rights conference organized by Vegan Advocacy Initiative in Los Angeles. Chema Hernández Gil and I, the founders of Seed the Commons, were also honored to receive the People's Award of $500. This is an award by POC for POC - created to support the work of vegan organizations led by people of color. Back in San Francisco and motivated by our strengthened sense of community, we're hard at work to bring you the best People's Harvest Forum yet.

The People's Harvest Forum is a three-day event where learn about the central role that our food system plays in social and environmental issues, hear about grassroots activism from around the world, and discuss ways that we can help build just and sustainable alternatives to our corporate-dominated food system. We've had incredible speakers from different walks - from vegan anarchist permaculturists to sitting San Francisco supervisors - allowing for a cross-pollination of ideas and movements. This year will be no different: we are proud to bring you another groundbreaking forum with these amazing speakers and a field trip to the community gardens of Collective Roots, a local food justice organization.
 
The People’s Harvest Forum is an all-volunteer, grassroots effort. To make it accessible to people of all income levels and to foster opportunities to build connections, tickets are sold on a sliding-scale and we provide healthy meals and snacks. For it to be successful, we need your support. Please donate, come to our epic vegan pizza fundraiser, or volunteer at the forum. Volunteer tasks include registration, food prep, photography and more; simply shoot us an email and let us know when you are available and if you have any preferred tasks.
