Networks and organizational anchors
These folks support, train, organize, collectivize, and help resource the on-the-ground work:
National Black Food and Justice Alliance (NBFJA) BLP is a project of the Alliance. NBFJA organizes for Black food and land, by increasing the visibility of visionary Black leadership, advancing Black people’s struggle for just and sustainable communities, and building power in our food systems and land stewardship.
