Please take a moment to honor the land upon which we live and the First Nations who have lived with it for more than twelve thousand years. We recognize the sovereignty of the Ho-Chunk Nation and the eleven other First Nations of Wisconsin, and we acknowledge that we live, farm, and occupy territory unceded by the Ho-Chunk nation, which has and continues to resist displacement and violence at the hands of the state.
We urge all to remember the histories of violence, dispossession, and exploitation of both land and people which has created the place we know as ‘Madison,’ and how these violent histories are inextricably intertwined with racialized and gendered structures of oppression. We are grateful that you join us in radically re-imagining the relationships between land, food, and people; here’s to a just future for all.
