The 2019 Fellows
WHAT CHANGES THE WORLD?People do.
The 2019 cohort is deeply rooted in land, seeds, and cultural sovereignty. The cohort’s leaders are actively working to reclaim, own, and share land and practices that re-root the food system closer to indigenous and immigrant cultural practices. The cohort’s work connects food to culture as a means of practicing liberation, health, community-building, and bringing people closer to the roots of what food means to us as people.
Our vision is realized through these amazing leaders.
