Hunger for Justice Broadcast: Tanya Kerssen in Conversation with Elizabeth Mpofu

As part of the Hunger for Justice webinar series hosted by A Growing Culture, Tanya had a fascinating conversation with Elizabeth Mpofu, General Coordinator of the international peasant confederation La Vía Campesina and founder of the Zimbabwe Smallholder Organic Farmers’ Forum. They talked about how women—and rural African women in particular—are affected by the pandemic; why ending violence against women is necessary for advancing food sovereignty; and why we must look to African women farmers for solutions. It was a special honor to speak with Elizabeth about these important topics during this moment of  crisis and widespread protest in Zimbabwe and around the world.
