SLVLFC Equity Statement, crafted by SLVLFC staff and board in 2020:

The San Luis Valley Local Foods Coalition (SLVLFC) has held equity and justice in its core values since its founding. We are prioritizing equity and seeking new ways to actualize these values in our practices.

The SLVLFC acknowledges that it stands on the shoulders of many ancestors, some who caused healing and some who caused harm.

We recognize that this country was stolen from indigenous people and built upon the backs of enslaved people. We seek to create a place of equity led by the voices of the people both present and past.

We stand before you ready to listen to the many voices of those who suffer at our capitalistic, colonialist culture; we are ready to examine our work and change our ways, admitting we participate in this oppressive culture.

Declaración de equidad de SLVLFC, elaborada por el personal y la junta de SLVLFC en 2020:

La Coalición de Alimentos Locales del Valle de San Luis (SLVLFC) ha mantenido la equidad y la justicia en sus valores fundamentales desde su fundación. Estamos priorizando la equidad y buscando nuevas formas de actualizar estos valores en nuestras prácticas.

El SLVLFC reconoce que se apoya en los hombros de muchos antepasados, algunos que curaron y otros que causaron daño.

Reconocemos que este país fue robado a los indígenas y construido sobre las espaldas de los esclavos. Buscamos crear un lugar de equidad liderado por las voces de las personas tanto del presente como del pasado.

Estamos ante ustedes listos para escuchar las muchas voces de aquellos que sufren en nuestra cultura capitalista y colonialista; estamos listos para examinar nuestro trabajo y cambiar nuestras formas, admitiendo que participamos en esta cultura opresiva.
