At this point, when our delegation is leaving to Philly, it's important to give gratitude to everyone that has supported us and to ask for support from everyone in our communities.
For me CRAVE has been an amazing experience so far, we have demanded the food justice movement the Northwest will not be without youth voice. And that our fight for justice of one specific kind is not disconnected from the many other struggles for justice our collective communities are involved in. Supporting CRAVE is supporting the idea that food justice is thoroughly incomplete if it maintains patriarchy, that access to healthy food is not just if we torture animals in the process, and that community gardens can't be for the community if they aren't queer safe. At CRAVE we put our radical process above the money we make at the end of the day. As a result we've only been able to send a portion of the youth working with us everyday to the conference in Philly. That said, there is a group of youth getting the information and training no one imagined they would be getting a year ago. Just the idea of that has inspired me to work to ensure that when they return from the conference those youth can educate me and my community, but more than anything lead us into action around issues we care so much about.
Any money you donate will be used for nothing but the most radical and inclusive work for food justice in the PNW, but more specifically south Seattle, and if you don't believe me feel free to come through to any of our events (that we post here on the blog) or hit us up on facebook or email and build with us at a meeting.
