Join us in a conversation facilitated by Fabu Phillis Carter examining the interconnections between race, mass incarceration and urban agriculture. Refreshments provided by Slow Food UW.

Building Food Justice Capacity in South Madison is a four-year community-university partnership that uses food as a strategy to break cycles of systematic incarceration of minorities by our criminal justice system. The partnership asks the question: How could improving healthy food access in South Madison simultaneously facilitate effective reentry for formerly incarcerated people?
