Romero discuss dismantling the systems of oppression and racism responsible for tragedies like the murders of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, George Floyd and far too many others -- and explore how the US can start to live up to its ideals.

By using the Food System Racial Equity Assessment tool in planning, groups can look carefully at how their decision-making processes can advance racial equity in the food system (6 pages; 2017). The Facilitation Guide provides step by step instructions for organizational groups to use the tool to evaluate programs, policies, and plans for their alignment with racial equity principles.
