Raj Patel author, journalist, and food policy expert, continuously challenges our presumptions about the global economy with his work both as a policy analyst and activist. He has worked for some of the most prestigious international organizations and protested against them, and constantly works to find ways to improve the world’s food system.
Please join us at the launch reception for the Food Labor Research Center (FLRC), a new project of the UC Berkeley Labor Center.
The FLRC is the first research center in the country to focus on the intersection of food justice and worker justice, and to raise awareness about the wages and working conditions of the 20 million workers in the U.S. food system. Founded this fall as a project of the UC Berkeley Labor Center, the FLRC has already collaborated with the Food Chain Workers Alliance to produce two reports, The Hands That Feed Us and A Dime a Day.
Join us for food, wine, and ‘food for thought’ from leading food and labor thinkers.
