For every candidate Climate People places, we donate 1% of the placement fee to an environmental nonprofit of the candidate's choosing. We hand-selected five stellar nonprofit organizations that fully exemplify our diversity and inclusion initiatives — one of which is Soul Fire Farm.
We wanted to find an organization that fights for not only the livelihood of the planet but for the equality of all of those who inhabit it. We believe it's crucial to have a diverse, equitable, and inclusive workforce in order to meet the challenges faced by climate change. We strongly believe in the mission of Soul Fire Farm and are honored to help fund their initiatives.
Soul Fire Farm is an Afro-Indigenous-centered community farm committed to uprooting racism and seeding sovereignty in the food system. They raise and distribute life-giving food as a means to end food apartheid. Their food program reaches over 10,000 people each year, including farmer training for Black and Brown growers, reparations and land return initiatives for northeast farmers, food justice workshops for urban youth, doorstep harvest delivery for food-insecure households, as well as system and policy education for public decision-making.
Soul Fire Farm's youtube channel has countless videos on the basics of Afro-indigenous farming techniques. They cover everything from proper composting to soil health.
They have also participated in countless media outreach initiatives with publications across the country. Learn more about Soul Fire Farm's roots, initiatives, and impact in a few of our favorite articles.
As always, Soul Fire Farm, can't do it alone. They need financial support to expand their sovereignty programs and make an ultimate impact. If you're in a position to, consider donating to help end racism in the U.S. food system.
