[Press Release] Princeton, NJ, August 8, 2017 – The fight for racial and environmental justice go hand-in-hand in the United States as proponents battle the exploitation of people of color and the land. The complexities and challenges of this fight will be the topic of discussion at this year’s Just Food Conference to be held September 21–23 at Princeton Theological Seminary.
Participants will share stories, eat and worship together as they explore experiences of race and food and how they connect with the deepest parts of our identities, often in subconscious ways. “Just Conversations” sessions at the conference will provide a forum for participants to connect the learnings from plenary sessions with the depths of their individual and collective stories.
Conference leadership includes:
• Keri Day, associate professor of constructive theology and African American religion, Princeton Seminary
• Eric Barreto, Weyerhaeuser Associate Professor of New Testament, Princeton Seminary
• Eric Holt-Giménez, executive director, Food First
• Nate Stucky, director of the Farminary, Princeton Seminary
• Theresa Thames, associate dean of religious life and the chapel, Princeton University
• Larissa Kwong Abazia, director of church relations, Princeton Seminary
