1. Our Work in Spanish 

As many of you know, Food Empowerment Project is an all-volunteer organization, and over the years we have been working to have our materials and F.E.P. website translated into Spanish, as was done with our www.veganmexicanfood.com website.

Thanks to our incredible volunteers, we have had some more resources translated:

One Struggle: Intersectionality and Critical Animal Studies

What is the relationship between nation, culture, race and species in the United States? How can we understand the entanglements of animality, sexuality and race? In what ways do the “posthumanities” help us understand paradigms in Critical Animal Studies? How are people of color, workers and animals situated within our food system? This conference is equally open to academics, students and activists.

Speakers include F.E.P.’s lauren Ornelas, Breeze Harper, Vasile Stanescu and many more.

This is a free event and the public is welcome.

* Suggested language and details: Please make a polite phone call and keep in mind the person you are speaking to probably has no idea about this policy—most people don’t. You just need to stay on the line for a customer service representative. For Safeway, they will ask you for your full name and phone number and if you have a Safeway card number.
 
Suggested language: “I am calling to log a comment against a Safeway / Albertsons policy that sometimes puts restrictive deeds on its former properties and prevents other grocery stores from moving in, sometimes for 10 years or more. This has impacted community health. I would like Safeway / Albertsons to end this policy immediately.”
 

If they ask questions you cannot answer, feel free to provide our email: info@foodispower.org and remind them you are calling because you disagree with this practice.

Order some of our leaflets to share with others by emailing info(at)foodispower.org.
