Celebrating Women’s Leadership in Food
Celebrating Women’s Leadership in Food (CWLF) advances a social movement of women in food and farming by creating spaces for women to celebrate, connect across difference, build trust, and create community so that we may cultivate new forms of leading together to shift paradigms of power and meaningfully address ecological crises and social inequity. We center leaders who are women-identified, trans, queer, Black, Indigenous and People of Color, and whose identities intersect and transcend these categories.
Funding purpose: Support CWLF in expanding their relationship building and mutual aid work to continue knitting together diverse and otherwise siloed communities working in food and agriculture across California. Funds are used to bring their celebrations and community building events to a wider farm network, particularly on farms impacted by climate events, fund mutual aid work, expand their symposium, and grow and more honorably compensate their staff team.
