Black farmers continuing their fight for Civil Rights. Farmworkers organizing for fair working conditions. Native youth restoring traditional foodways. Farmers struggling against Monsanto in the cornbelt. City residents reclaiming vacant lots for vibrant gardens.
These are the hidden stories of America.
Across the country, everyday people are responding to a failing food system, asserting the right of all people to real food, real culture and real jobs.
This summer, Live Real commemorates the Freedom Rides of the Civil Rights era with a journey exposing injustices and innovations in communities across America, from the 'hood to the heartland. We honor our political ancestors as we continue their journey for justice.
Thirteen riders, including Live Real staff, Real Food Fellows and allies, will travel across America to expose and uplift stories from farmers, food chain workers and #foodandfreedom fighters. The riders will teach youth about federal food policy, and carry our message to our political decision-makers: Real food is a real solution.
