As workers from across the food supply chain risk their lives to continue feeding us, the COVID-19 pandemic is highlighting the harms of existing labor policies and practices. The Johns Hopkins Center for a Livable Future’s Food Policy Networks project invites you to join us for a series of webinars to discuss how food policy councils can support food chain workers during COVID-19.
Thursday, May 28: Building buy-in and taking action
This roundtable discussion will provide examples of how food policy councils are organizing around food chain worker issues. Hear about how FPCs have built support for advocating on labor issues. Gain tips on communicating with decision-makers around labor issues. We also encourage attendees to share what their food policy councils are doing to support food workers during the pandemic.
