Description:

Building Equity and Promoting Drawdown in Our Regional Food Systems

TPSS Co-op is joining Busboys and Poets and the Takoma Alliance for Local Living Economy (TALLE/Takoma Park Mobilization), to co-host the Climate Action Coffee series for the month of November.

Please join us for a discussion on 'Building Equity and Promoting Drawdown in our Regional Food Systems’. Climate activists, legislators, small farmer advocates, cooperative grocery stores and other food system leaders will come together to highlight the importance of strengthening our regional food system and to determine where activists can step up to further the urgent work already underway.

We will be joined by Maryland Del. Lorig Charkoudian; Heather Bruskin, Montgomery County Food Council; Caroline Taylor, Montgomery Countryside Alliance; Ginia Avery, Community Grocery Cooperative; Philip Bogdonoff, Biodiversity for a Livable Climate; and other food systems leaders in our region.

Busboys and Poets full-service breakfast menu will be available, as well as complimentary Fair Trade coffee. We encourage anyone who is able to continue the conversation following the 7:30-9 a.m. program, either in the main dining area or in the Guillen Room, as Busboys and Poets generously invites us to remain there if we choose. Full breakfast service is available starting at 8 AM.

7:30-9:00 am Busboys and Poets, Takoma235 Carroll St NW, DC

The Climate Action Coffee takes place every Wednesday, 7:30 am-9 am at Busboy and Poets, Takoma.

This is a weekly series meant to provide an organizing workspace with action-oriented discussion circles focused on building the kinds of markets, society, food systems and resiliency that we want for our region; raising watershed and environmental justice consciousness; and following youth climate leaders in taking immediate action to reverse the dramatic disruption of our climate systems. Bring your vision and passion for reshaping our communities and local economies in the service of resiliency, racial equity, and carbon-neutrality.

Free coffee compliments of Busboys!
