Join the Movement

Most of my work on food justice has been focused on my local area, so many of the groups highlighted here are based in South Seattle and Washington State. If you have suggestions for others to add, please email me and I’ll consider including them in this list. 

The following organizations are doing important work addressing the root causes of inequality – check out their websites, and consider donating and/or volunteering to help further the mission of building a more just and equitable food system.

La Via Campesina

La Via Campesina is an international movement bringing together millions of peasants, small and medium size farmers, landless people, rural women and youth, indigenous people, migrants and agricultural workers from around the world. Built on a strong sense of unity and solidarity between these groups, it defends peasant agriculture for food sovereignty as a way to promote social justice and dignity and strongly opposes corporate driven agriculture that destroys social relations and nature.

Got Green

Got Green organizes for environmental, racial, and economic justice as a South Seattle-based grassroots organization led by people of color and low income people. We cultivate multi-generational community leaders to be central voices in the Green Movement in order to ensure that the benefits of the green movement and green economy (green jobs, healthy food, energy efficient & healthy homes, public transit) reach low income communities and communities of color.

Food First

The Institute for Food and Development Policy, better known as Food First, works to end the injustices that cause hunger through research, education and action.

Clean Greens

Clean Greens is a small nonprofit organization, owned and operated by residents of Seattle’s Central District. We are committed to growing and delivering clean and healthy produce for everyone at reasonable prices.
