MLK Day Pierson College Tea with Savi Horne, Land Loss Prevention Project

  • Pierson College Common Room 261 Park St. New Haven, CT 06511 (map)

What connects agriculture, land, and equity? In what ways can racial justice inform the future of land tenure in the American South, and beyond?

Join us for a Pierson College Tea on Martin Luther King Jr. day as we invite Savi Horne, Executive Director of the Land Loss Prevention Project (LLPP), to share her insights on agricultural justice law. Director Horne will speak about her decades of experience in coalition-building and connecting socially disadvantaged farmers with the resources and recourse they need.

This event is free and open to the public. It is co-sponsored by Pierson College and the Yale Center for the Study of Race, Indigeneity, and Transnational Migration.
