IV National Assembly: A Look at Friday

Something That Made us Think

As we kicked off the IV National Assembly of the US Food Sovereignty Alliance in Bellingham, Washington, Rosalinda Guillen of Community to Community Development, our host organization, reminded us that “This movement is a soil that holds our roots.”

Something that Made us Hopeful

Friday was a day of hope. From powerful report-backs on food sovereignty work from each of the regions of the US Food Sovereignty Alliance, to a march to Bellingham City Hall to demand protection for undocumented workers and their families, calling for a Sanctuary City ordinance to defend migrant rights — there is much to be hopeful for.

Something to Celebrate

During yesterday’s regional breakouts, movement babies and children with the Assembly Youth Circle prepared art for the Assembly’s action at Bellingham City Hall. Today we’re celebrating our time together and the future of our movements.
