Come join us at the Oxjam Music Festival, an unforgettable evening featuring both the music of local artists and information about Oxfam’s work to hold food and beverage companies accountable to farmers in developing countries.
Oxfam is tackling the issue of land grabs – the taking of land from farmers and indigenous peoples by big companies. This land is then often taken out of agricultural production, in countries where people struggle with obtaining enough food to eat. To learn more about the impact of land grabs on farmers, please read our World Food Day 2013 blog, further below.
We need your help to make Oxjam Minneapolis a success! We are looking for volunteers to help with planning and spreading the word on social media. Please join us for our next monthly meeting at 7pm on Dec. 12, at the Common Roots Café (back meeting room) in Minneapolis. Let us know what your skills are and how you would like to assist! You can reach us at (612) 293-9831 or firstname.lastname@example.org . Together, we can positively impact farmers in developing countries!
