Black & Indigenous Food Rights
What are Black & Indigenous Food Rights?
Black food sovereignty is about the Human Right to Food for all People of the African Diaspora, including us of Afro-Indigenous/multi-genetic descent. Whatever cultures, places, former colonies, or histories we came from, we all face anti-black systemic racism here in Canada and need to build Unity to achieve Equity and healthy food justice.
Black Food Sovereignty is a City of Toronto Government Priority, and St. James Town needs to be included. We need an equitable, healthy, and sustainable food system for our families and communities to guarantee our health and climate safety.
We are in the One Dish with One Spoon Treaty territory (great lakes region) and seek to work in Solidarity with the first peoples of this land and allies- to peaceably share and care for the resources and ecosystem of the GTA for all our relations and future generations.
