As many Americans brace themselves for the end of the world as they know it, the Oakland Food Policy Council is hoping to start organizing the resistance. During Thursday’s special meeting (held at 1000 Broadway, 5th floor, Room B), the nonprofit will look at ways that local restaurants and other food businesses can protect workers who may find themselves targeted under the Trump presidency — immigrants (both documented and undocumented), people of color, and so forth. One focus will be the Sanctuary Restaurants project — a national effort to get restaurants to self-identify as places that will have a “zero-tolerance policy for sexism, racism, and xenophobia.”
