New guide provides information on organizations led by People of Color and Indigenous Communities
Keecha Harris and Associates, Inc. (KHA) is pleased to introduce a resource guide of sustainable food systems organizations that are led by people of color and Indigenous communities. Support for this guide was made possible by the Mitsubishi Corporation. You can download or print the guide by clicking the image on the left.
The guide provides funders with a tool for identifying, sourcing and supporting organizations led by people of color and Indigenous communities that are working to improve America’s food systems. Though not an exhaustive compilation of all possible entities doing this work, the guide includes a total of 61 organizations. Using data from organizations’ websites and other online searches and publications, we determined whether organizations met the following inclusion criteria:
Focus on promoting sustainable food systems
Leadership composed of people of color and members of Indigenous communities
Active status as an organization based within the United States of America
Accessibility to potential funders via clear contact information
Promotion of farmers’ land rights
Target of community sustainability
Emphasis on “farm-to-table” concepts
To learn more about the guide and what funders and grantees are doing in the area of sustainable food systems across the U.S., please join us for a webinar from 1-2:15 p.m. CT on Wednesday, July 31.
