In 2017 Urban Tilth officially joined the US Food Sovereignty Alliance! We currently co-represent the US Western Region in the National Convening Committee with our friends from Community to Community from Bellingham Washington. Other members of the Western Region include Food First, Grassroots Global Justice, HEAL, Friends of the Earth, Movement Generation, and CAFA. We look forward to supporting the spread of sustainable agriculture practices such as agroecology, leading in the development of regionally local just and sustainable food systems, and transitioning farmlands from massive corporate entities driven by shareholder profit to agricultural economies that put soil, water, air, and people before profit.
From USFSA, “The US Food Sovereignty Alliance (USFSA) works to end poverty, rebuild local food economies, and assert democratic control over the food system. We believe all people have the right to healthy, culturally appropriate food, produced in an ecologically sound manner. As a US-based alliance of food justice, anti-hunger, labor, environmental, faith-based, and food producer groups, we uphold the right to food as a basic human right and work to connect our local and national struggles to the international movement for food sovereignty.”
