Professor Devparna Roy (SOAN) sent us the following info:
Dean Jackson is a Black, genderqueer farmer living in the Hilltop neighborhood of Tacoma, WA. He is the founder and director of Hilltop Urban Gardens (HUG) – a social justice organization working to develop systems of food sovereignty and create racial and economic justice. Dean has a long organizing history that ranges from early childhood education, to creating space and voice for queer people of color, to working to build a neighborhood food system. Dean strives for heart led leadership, honesty, compassion, and love.
This talk will highlight the work of HUG while examining the concepts of food charity, food justice, and food sovereignty.
