Your action can make a difference! There are several ways you can contribute to bringing social justice:
1. Become politically active
Meaningful change can start in our own surroundings. Simply inform yourself about any associations or groups in your own community that discuss political and social issues locally, and bring right to food issues to the table.
Are there families in your community that are deprived from adequate food? Is the food you are eating coming from lands that have been taken away from indigenous peoples? Are local markets disappearing and quickly being replaced by supermarket chains? Is cooking and care work evenly distributed at home?
Are your political representatives addressing these issues at all?
If there is no type of community gathering to discuss these and other key social issues, create your own and bring neighbors, family and friends on board. Your time, commitment and passion are the major ingredients for change.
2. Use your own channels to spread the word
If you have the commitment and passion, but lack time, you can still contribute. You can raise awareness of current violations of the right to food and nutrition happening in your community –or elsewhere – and the initiatives to counter them!
Make sure you are connected to other supporters by:
- Using #RightToFood on social media
- Backing others’ initiatives on online channels
- Letting us know, so we can make sure it reaches out to the rest of the world via @Fianista on Twitter, FianInternational on Instagram or email@example.com
3. Become a member
