Community Food and Justice Coalition

Community Food and Justice Coalition The Community Food and Justice Coalition promotes the basic human right of access to healthy food.
CFJC was formed in 2003 by community groups and farmers in urban, suburban, and rural California to focus on equity in the Farm Bill process. In 2012, CFJC changed it's name to Community Food and Justice Coalition with a clear commitment to social change and policy reform that address inequities and support a food system that is sustainable for our people, the economy, and land.

Methodology: Through education, movement building, and advocacy, we collaborate with communities and organizations on issues of healthy food access, poverty, land use, climate change, and immigration. Equity and social justice are the basis for how we approach all of our work. We support communities to affect systemic change starting at the local level.

Mission: The Community Food and Justice Coalition promotes the basic human right of access to healthy food. By partnering with individuals and organizations at the local, state, and national level, CFJC works on grassroots initiatives to develop and support a food system that is equitable, healthy, environmentally sustainable, and community-driven.

SERVICE WORKERS ARE NOT DISPOSABLE. We refuse to work under such dangerous conditions. We need basic protections like gloves and masks. We need hazard pay. We need paid sick leave. We need RESPECT on the job. #WalkoutWednesday

The Silence of the Men

December Executive Director Letter:
"Maybe it will be different this time. Maybe the outcry from women in 2017 will have marked a turning point in the honesty and maturation of the psyche of a culture exemplified by election of a self-proclaimed bombastic repeated sexual harasser to the office of President of the United States.

Maybe something will change now, unlike when the murder of children at Sandy Hook five years ago which held the national attention but ultimately resulted in no legislation to address the proliferation of gun violence, and killing of innocents.

Maybe it will be different this time. When the Ferguson community rose up in anger and frustration and said enough! More than a year ago, the cameras and focus gave a platform for highlighting the continued killing of black men, women and children while in police custody. In a country with 5% of the world’s population that houses at least 20% of the planet’s incarcerated prisoners, a young black man has a one-in-three chance of ending up in prison. Compared to 1 n 17 for white males.

Maybe now we can continue the discussions and move to change the status quo that witnessed the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr. and where Rep. John Lewis was nearly beat to death and other Freedom Riders attacked, and now the U.S. Justice Department under Attorney General Jefferson Beauregard Sessions, III and individual states move to restrict the voting rights of ethnic populations.

Maybe now...."

High Holiday Season

CFJC's November Executive Director Letter:
"Because of the nature of computer algorithms and data farming, modern politics has become about energizing “the base.” But increasingly the millions outside those metrics will likely determine the future of politics in Alabama, and in communities across the country in 2017, 2018 and beyond."

High Holiday Season

"The Republican tax plan foreshadows a new transfer of wealth, and not just with regard to the inheritance tax.

If the last move—intergenerational transfer of wealth—resulted in the loss of a vibrant middle class, we are now looking at the next step which will be the loss of the commons.

That is the big picture perspective.

Back to gratitude. While not thrilled with the outcome of the last presidential election, nor with the policy changes emanating from the White House, I am grateful that perhaps never have I seen so clearly the elements in play that support the loss of a commons."

Dear Friends and Colleagues:

"Last November, in Long Beach California, my mother’s children and grandchildren gathered at a neighborhood elementary school to witness a ceremony formally changing the school’s name in her honor. Olivia Nieto Herrera was an amazing woman, but of course, to me she was just, mom.

Her achievements included partnering with Rep. Shirley Chisholm, the first African American woman elected to Congress, on the Chisholm Trail when the feisty Congresswoman was the first Black woman to run for President of the United States. That was only one among many groundbreaking moments in the life of my mother but I am writing of that elsewhere.

No, this column is about how small the world and our country are, about how local all politics really is, and about how interconnected we all are with one another. Because you see, the newly renamed Olivia Nieto Herrera Elementary School was originally named Robert E. Lee Elementary School.

What is in a name?"

O Captain! My Captain!

"...It came as no surprise that Congressional opposition to Trumpcare decried efforts at repeal and replace of the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) as a thinly disguised tax cut plan for wealthy Americans—roughly the lion’s share of $800 billion. Now that initial efforts have failed, the Farm Bill process is next up with another large pot of money—roughly $800 billion in SNAP benefits—that will likely be in the cross-hairs by a Congressional majority party seemingly desperate to find any way to redistribute more wealth to the 1% whose agents are unrelenting in pursuit of amassing ever more wealth. Led by the current White House resident...."

http://comfoodjustice.org/2017/07/09/your-new-normal-is-vigilance/Dear Friends and Colleagues:

I’ve been on something of a hiatus, spending time in the Santa Barbara/Carpinteria/Rincon area writing and attending the Santa Barbara Writers Conference (SBWC). It was an adventure-filled two weeks about which I will write elsewhere. During that time I pretty much ignored the news and didn’t turn on a television set, not once. However, one thing I did do was continue to facilitate the weekly GOAT (Getting Our Act Together) conference call, and it is that about which I want to write this month.

As the result of a side meeting at the CFSC 15th Annual Food Justice Conference in 2011 held in Oakland, California, a group that included members of CFJC, the Rural Coalition, National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition (NSAC), National Family Farm Coalition (NFFC), Public Health Institute (PHI), and Food First among many others met to organize a new kind of collaboration to work on the 2012 Farm Bill. Since that moment, and now entering our sixth year of weekly conference calls and annual meetings, the GOAT participants have maintained an evolving and safe space where community members, activists, policy wonks, farmers, and D.C. watch dogs can meet to freely express their views, hopes and frustrations with a surprisingly diverse group of participants from across the country. It is a place to discuss and develop food policy that works for people and communities, instead of just for corporate interests.

Today, the Coalition is led by a 65 year old man, me, who wants to help guide the work into the next decade, and the next Farm Bill, and the new world that is being created around us, with our complacent acceptance. After all, we are the grown ups. It is our job to pay attention, and leave the world a little better than we found it. It is almost criminal that studies show our children will likely not live as long as us. There are many reasons, but surely we have to take responsibility for feeding healthy and nutritious food to every single child. I submit we should achieve that standard before a CEO receives a bonus for anything. Why not?

Which brings us back to food. And climate change. And justice—food justice and climate justice.

CFJC is spending the next six months in a vision and planning process to address these questions, in the context of our changing economy and world.

We have a theory of change, curricula and mentoring programs, an internship program and organizing model, and other methodologies and strategies that could be of benefit to other nonprofit organizations, and that were developed over the course of ten years of working in communities in California and other states, by the wonderful and talented staff and Coalition members from Heather and Shireen to Hai and Christina, Jessy, Erin, Lotta and Courtney, and truly amazing interns from all across the country and Canada. Surely, our communities should not have to re-invent programs every generation. Surely, what all of us have learned through sweat equity and experience must be passed down or passed along. That is the presenting and framing question that drives our exploration and planning approach.

Please contact me at [email protected] if you want to be part of the planning process. Using the technologies that allowed CFJC staff and members to convene weekly meetings remotely, we will have regular video meetings as we conduct our process.

Yes, it is pretty wonderful to be alive in an era when you can recover from heart failure. I plan to make the most of it, and many many thanks to all of you who have lent your support, well wishes and prayers. I feel blessed.

Gee whiz, it’s great to be back!

New Executive Director Letter:
"Yes, it is great to be back, especially when it is so very important for each of us to stand up for the values and public policy we want to see promoted in a volatile political climate. If we don’t, it is more than likely the media will select a few high profile issues on which to focus. That’s my analysis and observation for what each of us has to do, on a personal level. Stand and be counted. Speak out."

Secret that USDA does feed people
UMass Stockbridge instructor, Catherine Sands, will be offering a new ONLINE class this summer, Food Justice and Policy. For more information, see: https://sustfoodfarm.org/online-classes/food-justice/ This course examines the role of policy in determining WHAT we eat, WHO experiences barriers to access to safe, healthy, local, fairly produced foods, and HOW we create equity and sustainability in our local food system. We will start by looking at the basic components of our food system: production, distribution, and consumption. We will then examine systemic structures of race, class, citizenship and ability as they relate to access to healthy local food. The course-work concludes with an in-depth look at food sovereignty, the right of communities to choose how their food is produced and what they consume, the impact of agribusiness and the concentration of resources into the hands of a few corporations, and the dramatic effect U.S. food policies have on the rest of the world. Students will have the opportunity to do research and analysis about successful food justice initiatives and the Farm Bill. NOTE: Although STOCKSCH 265 (Sustainable Agriculture) is listed as a requirement, this is not the case for the online class. Please contact the instructor to override this pre-requisite and register!

Washington State- 𝘼 𝙢𝙚𝙨𝙨𝙖𝙜𝙚 𝙛𝙧𝙤𝙢 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙈𝙞𝙡𝙡 𝘾𝙖𝙣𝙮𝙤𝙣 𝙒𝙖𝙩𝙚𝙧 𝙋𝙧𝙤𝙩𝙚𝙘𝙩𝙤𝙧𝙨 (𝙋𝙡𝙚𝙖𝙨𝙚 𝙨𝙝𝙖𝙧𝙚): We are residents and organic farmers who live in an area near Davenport, Washington called Mill Canyon. We feel threatened by proposals to spread municipal sewage sludge on nearly 900 acres of nearby agricultural land uphill from where we live, garden and farm. The area in question includes our natural watershed. We are alarmed because the Washington State Department of Ecology will likely approve the permit within days, despite our objections. We are organizing to prevent the permit application to dump the sludge from being approved and we are preparing to mount an expensive appeal if the permit is approved.
