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:
- Our report, Shining a Light on the Valley of Heart’s Delight: Taking a Look at Access to Healthy Foods in Santa Clara County’s Communities of Color and Low-Income Communities, can now be read on our website: foodispower.org/scc_study_es.php
- Humane Myths: foodispower.org/humane_myths_es.php
- Our leaflet has also been translated into Spanish, and thanks to a grant from A Well-Fed World, these have now been printed:
foodispower.org/documents/pamphlet.pdf for English and
foodispower.org/documents/pamphlet_spanish.pdf for Spanish.
To order leaflets to distribute, please contact us at info(at)foodispower.org.

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.
