February 2022 Updates

As the days are getting longer and many of us are preparing for spring, we hope you are finding ways to rest and take good care of yourselves. At the end of Black History Month, we invite in words of feminist scholar and revolutionary, Angela Davis:

“I am no longer accepting the things I cannot change…I am changing the things I cannot accept.”

Let us build and maintain our fire as individuals and a collective to sustain our work for justice in agriculture and beyond. Check out these updates and opportunities from the dota2(江苏)决赛下载v1.6版 team in California!
