Many individuals and organizations, including here in Vermont, have worked tirelessly on addressing racism broadly and specifically within the food system for decades. We encourage you to elevate their work, galvanize support and educate yourself. This is, by no means, an exhaustive list of resources, so please reach out if you have additional resources to add.
The 21-Day Racial Equity Habit Building Challenge (aka the Racial Equity Challenge) is simple! You (along with thousands of other people across the US) commit to deepening your understanding of, and willingness to confront, racism for twenty-one consecutive days. At the very least, the Challenge will raise your awareness. But for many participants it goes beyond that and changes they way they see and interact with the world.

Distribute wealth through this resource created by 3 Black Vermonters. "One of the EASIEST ways to support Black life, Black joy, Black safety, Black community— is to give your money to Black people. This is a requirement. To give generously, regularly, and with humility."
The food system was built on the stolen land and stolen labor of Black, Indigenous, Latinx, Asian and people of color. Members of the Northeast Farmers of Color Network are claiming our sovereignty and calling for reparations of land and resources so that we can grow nourishing food and distribute it in our communities. The specific projects and resource needs of farmers of color are listed here. We are so excited about this powerful opportunity for people to people solidarity. It’s simple. If you have resources, contact the farmer directly to share. Please contact us at email@example.com with your reparations success stories so we can celebrate this healing work with you.
Help Susu Heals purchase land for Black and brown farmers in Vermont! Visioning a sustainable, food secure future for our people, we are looking for ways to cultivate food ourselves. A future where Black and brown people in Vermont can come together to live, heal and thrive. Which to us, means purchasing land for farming, gardening and intergenerational healing. A space that is stewarded by Black and brown people, a place of safety, connection, and healing. Our vision is to build healing and nourishing spaces for our people and our children in the here and now but our vision is long-range as we look to the future. A future where food sovereignty is guaranteed to the next generations of Black and brown people in Vermont.
