Please join Duke Puget Sound and Duke Sanford World Food Policy Center for a presentation on how white-dominant narratives present themselves in food systems work. 

Alison Conrad M.P.P.'20 will speak about the historical context of structural racism in the food system and how that leads to inequities and disparities in the modern-day food system. We encourage participants to follow The Leading Voices in Food podcast series by Duke Sanford World Food Policy Center as we will highlight the episode 8 Ways White Bias Can Misdirect Food System Work during the event.
