Center for Biological Diversity – Regenerative Grazing: Addressing the Colonial Roots of Cattle Ranching [Series 3/4]
April 28 @ 3:00 pm
SIGN UP HERE: https://biodiv.us/3rmwgkj
The introduction of cows to the Americas brought colonialist legacies that changed the relationship of people to land. As we continue our webinar series about food, farming and the impacts of cows, we dive deeper into the history of how cattle grazing has affected the ways land was imagined, understood and used.
Today regenerative practices are offered as options to heal the injustices and damaging agricultural practices of the past. This panel will discuss how we got here — how cows advanced colonial projects and capitalist economies and drove the loss of Native lives, livelihoods and culture. To transform food systems, we need food justice, land equity, restoration of traditions, and challenges to power — along with environmentally responsible practices.
Join the Center for Biological Diversity and guest speakers on April 28, 2022, at 3 p.m. PT / 6 p.m. ET for a panel discussion on both the past and the future, including pathways to revive knowledge and food practices that are more in line with healthy communities and living landscapes.
Note: This webinar is the third of four in the series, “Grazing the Wild: Facts and Fiction about Grass-fed Beef.” Check out the others for additional topics from a variety of panelists.
