Put Your Politics Where Your Mouth Is is an annual week of talks, teach-ins, and skill sharing around food justice on campus and beyond. This series of events is coordinated by The Midnight Kitchen and The People’s Potato – two campus-based soup collective that serve by-donation vegan meals to McGill and Concordia students as well as the general Montreal community.
Our goal is to provide spaces to skillshare, discuss and learn about the politics of food. This year workshops and events will focus specifically on the ways food politics intersect with race, racism and white supremacy. Workshops and events will highlight the ways in which Indigenous Peoples and People of Colour are impacted by a variety issues related to food politics, as well as resilience and resistance in the face of dominant food systems which inflict violence upon the lives, bodies and lands of racialized people.
We have prioritized the voices of self-identified People of Colour and Indigenous Peoples in the selection of workshops and workshop presenters.
