NESAWG’S 2015 IT TAKES A REGION CONFERENCE

Thursday, November 12, 2015 (All day) to Saturday, November 14, 2015 (All day)
Location: 
Saratoga Springs, NY

NESAWG's annual It Takes a Region Conference takes on the 12-state Northeast region from Maine to West Virginia. By taking a regional approach, we can grow our thinking and our work to develop a truly sustainable and resilient food system.

NESAWG’s 2015 Conference Theme: PUTTING MOVE IN THE MOVEMENT
Civil rights, labor, women’s rights—the movements that transformed our world can give us insight on ways to accelerate food systems change.  What can we learn from leaders past and present?  How can we better organize our work, our networks, our message, our media?  Learn and strategize with hundreds of attendees—from farmers to researchers to policymakers—as we work to build a movement and realize the change we want to see.

Civil rights activist Shirley Sherrod will deliver the keynote address. Read more.
