With land, water and seeds increasingly controlled by a small number of poorly regulated transnational corporations, effective social change for resource rights and a fair food system must match this global reach. We call this life-giving cross-border work globalization from below. This work puts us at the front lines of the struggle between private gain and public good.
In that work, we are honored to have a longstanding partnership with the powerful and visionary global movement La Via Campesina International, which represents more than 200 million small producers in more than 70 countries from Africa, Asia, Europe and the Americas..
As we support the Via’s international reach, our relationship transcends national borders. This relationship is central to our core focus on Resource Rights, including climate justice, and has brought us into new regions of the world, new venues of struggle and innovative models of community life and global movement building.
As part of this work, we are proud to be deepening our relationship with the World March of Women (WMW), an international feminist action movement working to eliminate the causes at the root of poverty and violence against women.
