Authors of the book “Food Justice,” Robert Gottlieb and Anupama Joshi, facilitated a discussion with food justice leaders at last week’s 2010 Community Food Security Conference in New Orleans — in an effort to situate and define food justice as a crucial part of the struggles to change the food system.

The UpTake will post videos throughout the week that we recorded at the 2010 Community Food Security Conference in New Orleans.
