    The existing pandemic has highlighted and exacerbated existing inequities in the food system. This program highlights law and policy measures aimed at food system equality. The speakers for this panel will address a range of issues including the role American trade policy plays in supporting industrial and factory farming that promotes continued injustice and risk of disease; measures to slow line speeds and increase workplace protections for meat and poultry workers to reduce injury and illness; comprehensive measures targeted at race-based marketing to eliminate racial health disparities; and the role and promise of mutual aid societies in addressing food insecurity.
