Food & Land Justice Fund
New Communities, Jubilee Justice, and Decolonizing Wealth Project (DWP) have partnered to create the Food & Land Justice Fund to redistribute resources to Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC)-led organizations leading food and land justice and sovereignty efforts across the country.
The Food & Land Justice Fund comes as Black farmers fight to reclaim land ownerships that have declined by over 16 million acres in the last century and as Native farmers fight to reclaim their ancestral foodways. The grantee partners selected as part of the Food and Land Justice Fund are building on these efforts while addressing the disparities that their communities have faced for generations. They are employing a range of strategies, including building local power through community organizing to protect the loss of additional land, fighting back against pipelines being built through farmlands, and protecting and stewarding seeds in order to reclaim the pre-colonial diet that is rooted in traditional hunting, fishing, and foraging practices.
