Detroit

Decolonizing Our Food, Home & Body

Date: 
Wed, Nov 30, 2016 - 6:00pm to 7:30pm

City:

Join members of the Detroit Equity Action Lab - 2, a project of the Damon Keith Center for Civil Rights in a conversation about what it means to decolonize your body and home and reconnect to healthier systems and practices. Decolonization means reclaiming and honoring our food, histories, stories, and traditions as a way to fight for our common humanity.

The recovery of the people is tied to recovery of food, since food itself is medicine—not only for the body but also for the soul and the spiritual connection to history, ancestors, and the land.

***URGENT UPDATE ON RASMEA"S CASE***

The Rasmea Defense Committee just now got word from Rasmea's defense attorneys that Judge Gershwin Drain cancelled the Daubert hearing that was scheduled for tomorrow, Tuesday, November 29th, in Detroit.

We have no idea what this means, besides the simple fact that the judge will be rendering a written decision without hearing arguments.
