Event Details

For the 21.5 million people who work across the food chain—from farm fields to meat packing factories to grocery stores—their jobs were already among the most low-paid, exploitative, and dangerous in the economy before COVID-19. The crisis has only heightened the stakes for food workers. Today, in the midst of the pandemic, these workers are among the most impacted while they toil to keep food on our tables. In this third conversation in the 2022 Roots of Resilience series, Host Anna Lappé brings together the voices of a journalist covering food workers and two advocates fighting for worker well-being. Hear from Leah Douglas about their groundbreaking reporting about COVID illness and death in America’s meat packing plants and from advocates Ligia Guallpa of the Worker Justice Project and Suzanne Adely of the Food Chain Workers Alliance about how worker organizing has responded to this moment. What opportunities does this crisis offer to protect workers? How can we express solidarity with workers across the food economy? We will hear stories of solidarity at the core of our collective resilience.
