The Community Advocacy Support Center (CASCAID) is happy to invite you to our 9th annual Community Advocacy Conference at Western Washington University. The CASCAID Conference brings together activists and academics for a meaningful exchange of ideas and methods. The 2012 theme is “Food Solidarity”, and we will be exploring the many connections between various aspects of the food system (farming, fisheries, nutrition, labor, corporate influence, food sovereignty, hunger, safety, ecology, etc). Everyone is affected by food!
The keynote address will be May 18th at 7pm in WWU’s Academic-West 210, featuring Eric Holt-Gimeńez, long-time food activist, Executive Director of Food First, and author of “Food Movements Unite!” Workshops, discussion forums, academic panels, etc, will take place May 18th and 19th.
