A short film by Luke McKinley, produced in solidarity with Community to Community and Familias Unidas Por La Justicia, looks at how the people who cultivate, pick, sort, harvest and plant our food is life itself; it is our lives, together.
About Community to Community
C2C strives to develop projects that come from and are led by the folks from communities that need to affect change for improving the lives of their families and future generations. They work to identify common goals and actions among people from marginalized communities and those that believe in sustainability with social justice as a way of life. At the core of C2C’s programmatic work is the belief in and commitment to eco-feminism and food justice. Program work is structured in three major program areas: Participatory Democracy, Food Justice and Movement Building. The program areas are taken to action via projects that are hands-on, community based and led.
About Familias Unidas Por La Justicia
For almost three years, farmworker families at Sakuma Brothers Farm have been fighting for an end to systemic wage theft, poverty wages, hostile working conditions, and unattainable production standards. They have led a series of boycotts in hope for systemic changes rooted in a unionized farmworker model.
