Join SAFSF and First Nations Development Institute (First Nations) to learn about the beauty, complexity, and resilience of Native American communities and food and agriculture systems. Ricardo Salvador, director of the Food and Environment Program at the Union of Concerned Scientists, and A-dae Romero-Briones, director of programs – Native Agriculture and Food Systems for First Nations, will lead a dynamic discussion featuring several video clips from GATHER, a feature-length film that celebrates Native food systems and the work being done to reclaim them.

Funders will deepen their knowledge of U.S. food systems and how policy, systemic racism, and inequity have shaped Indigenous agriculture and food systems both historically and today. They will also learn how they can address the barriers Native communities face in obtaining funding for their work.
