The Institute for Policy Studies’ Public Scholar Series is a year-long series of panels and workshops uniquely selected by interns –our public scholars-in-training– and that reach beyond established IPS issue areas in an effort to reflect the greatest swatch of experiences from younger people and those of diverse backgrounds.
The fight to preserve and keep land and water resources from becoming privatized is shared among agricultural workers around the world. Three DC-based activists from Rural Coalition/Coalición Rural will explain how women, spirituality, and culture have played and continue to play a central role in land movements and the ways international trade agreements target farmer communities. Parts of the film Our Land, Our Lives: The North Carolina Black Farmer’s Experience will be shown.
Moderated by Adwoa Masozi, IPS Internship Coordinator.
These discussions are free and open to the public but a suggested donation of $5 will be appreciated. Please let us know you’re coming by sending an RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
