Public conversations about food have flourished since the 1960s. In the wake of these conversations, it is important to ask, is the “food movement” a social movement? This class will explore what details a social movement and what it will take to shift the power balance.
Building on her vast experience as co-founder and co-director of the Restaurant Opportunities Centers United, Saru Jayaraman will discuss ways to take fights for bold social change goals and transform them into sustained action.
