‘It Takes a Region’ Conference Issues Call for Proposals

Organizers of the 2019 Northeast Sustainable Agriculture Working Group’s It Takes a Region conference are requesting session proposals. The conference is set for November 7-9, 2019, in Jersey City, New Jersey. Organizers are looking for sessions that tackle systemic issues with engaging activities and presentations that prioritize the leadership and voices of those most impacted by the issue discussed. Priority will be given to sessions presented by traditionally underrepresented groups that directly address some aspect of inequity in the food system. Five conference tracks will be offered this year. Submissions will be accepted through June 8, 2019.
