We’re excited to launch our next two-part series on Policy & Law. Policy, law, and politics in general can sometimes seem more complicated than they’re worth. For many of us, the laws that govern us remain somewhat mysterious and abstract — we know they shape our world, but we don’t always have the energy to think about how and why.
•
The two writers who contributed to this theme remind us that policy matters in tangible ways and on an individual basis. They invite us to look beyond the red tape and endless news cycle. If we can learn to think about how law affects marginalized communities, perhaps we can also join those communities in using law as a tool to shape the world around us. #streetsideconversations

For the month of October we will be hearing from four different authors about the connections between food and justice.
•
As human beings living in overlapping biological, ecological, and economical sectors, our relationships with food are often complicated ones. We eat for physical nourishment as well as for community, and we expend both natural and created resources in order to obtain food. As the following pieces artistically and truthfully show, food and life are inseparable. The food we eat is more than fuel. It’s also a way we can seek to do justice and give life — not just for our own bodies, but also for the bodies of others.
