After the screening, the event continues at the American Museum of Radio and Electricity:

Music and dancing led by Seattle Fandango Project, a grassroots group dedicated to building community through the fandango jarocho of Veracruz.

This event is meant to highlight equity in our local food system. “We hope this event will help people better recognize the links between environmental and social justice in our food system and to work to form partnerships that move us forward on all fronts,” says Ann Russell, Program Manager at KulshanCLT. Local organizations working on issues related to land access, food sovereignty and social justice will be at the event to answer questions from the community.
