This episode features our conversation with Nicole Deane, who we had the chance to meet on our road trip last summer. When we spoke with her, Nicole was working with Planting Justice, a non-profit food justice organization based in Oakland, California. Nicole shared with us about how these issues of access to food and meaningful work relate to the challenges of racism and the prison industrial complex. She talked about how together we might discover our common humanity, and begin to address some of these challenges.
Planting Justice works to democratize access to affordable, nutritious food by empowering urban residents with the skills, knowledge, and resources they need to maximize organic food production, expand job opportunities, and ensure environmental sustainability in the Bay Area.
