Ragtags Against Doom Food Justice Gathering

at SE Cesar E Chavez Blvd & SE Oak St



At our last meeting we agreed to link up with anyone growing food from different collectives and communities who wish to join with us in supporting marginalized communites and the grassroots community both to be resilient so that we may opt out succesfully from the exploitative dominant agricultural system by creating a decentralized municipal farm.

We believe doing this will address three world crises relating to food, climate and energy, and plus shift the power back to people struggling with street life and all other forms of survival under capitalism. Food justice is an integral part of racial, economic, social, and climate justice, worldwide. Together we can build a more equitable, localized, sustainable solution to hunger.

At this meeting we will hear a report back from the affinity group known as the "Divergence" and possibly other affinity groups, begin discussing the work already being done by other groups in the city of Portland with a similar focus, seek out how to build a municipal decentralized farm with allies, create teams to take on roles and tasks, prepare for 2018 and put together a text alert system.

Gathering at noon.

Meeting starts at 12:30 P.M.
