We are gearing up for a dynamic new addition to our Food Justice Voices series, the Youth Food Justice Zine and need your help! The Youth Food Justice Zine, now accepting submissions, will lift up the voices of youth food justice activists and look at the different narratives about youth power that have impacted multiple generations in the U.S. We believe it’s important to have a platform where youth can discuss the issues that affect them, learn about the exploitations occurring in global food systems, be empowered, and have influence in changing policies. All submissions; drawings, lyrics, slam poetry, photos, collages, and other written and artistic pieces, are now being accepted and we want as many voices as possible to be included in this zine! Help spread the word and encourage the amazing youth you know who are doing food justice work to participate. Below are some guidelines. Deadline for submission is April 1, 2015 by 5pm EST.
General topics for submission: Food Justice Food Sovereignty Food Systems Environmental Justice Food as medicine Food Culture Hunger and more!
