Free Webinar: Good Food and Good Jobs - Jul 12th!

From the Applied Research Center:

ARC continues to present groundbreaking research this summer! The upcoming “Good Food and Good Jobs for All” report highlights innovations at the intersection of the good food and good jobs movements. Find out more about building healthy communities with our free webinar next Thursday, July 12 at 10am PT/1pm ET.
Access to healthy and sustainable food is linked to jobs that pay living wages. Yet the movement for good food sometimes leaves out crucial factors for low-income communities of color, such as wages, immigration status, and enforcement of safe working and living conditions. Similarly, many labor advocates don't address how and why food security and land sovereignty relate to their struggles for workers.
Presenters include ARC's Senior Research Associate and report author Yvonne Liu, Liana Foxvog, Director of Organizing and Communications at International Labor Rights Forum, and Jose Oliva, Program Director at ROC United. ARC's Research Director Dom Apollon will moderate.

Good Food and Good Jobs Webinar on July 12 at 10am PT/1pm ET.
This webinar will discuss the following report findings:
  • People of color are most impacted by the inequities of our current food system
  • Labor is more likely to be engaged in good food, but both labor and food face challenges in working at the intersection
  • Building multiracial coalitions with a diverse set of stakeholders is key to winning both good food and good jobs
  • We will also highlight public policy opportunities at the intersections of good food and good jobs
We hope you’ll join us next week for this free webinar! For more information, visit
