As a NAMA staff and board, for several years we’ve been deepening our commitment to our core values, especially when it comes to ‘dignity for all people’ and our commitment to racial equity. We know that understanding how systems of inequity show up in our fishing communities and our seafood supply chain ultimately start by understanding ourselves. During our recent staff retreat at NAMA, we had a chance to examine the need for racial equity every day.
This month there are a couple of opportunities for all of us to deepen our own commitments to these issues:
- Food Solutions New England Webinar focused on the power of a network
- FSNE’s 21-Day Racial Equity Habit Forming Challenge
- Who historically fished and farmed your community? Watch this video on the importance of land acknowledgement, then visit this map to identify the land you occupy
