Chew on This! GMOs 101
Nov 10 2015 /5:30 pm - 7:30 pm$8 – $10
GMOs. What are they? Where are they? Why do 90% of American eaters want to know where they are?
Are they safe? Do we need them to feed the world? Why are they at the heart of a $200M+ PR campaign? Come for an often humorous, beginning journey down the rabbit hole of the complex the world of genetic engineering from bacteria to mosquitoes to corn to humans.
Guest presenter Pamm Larry is a grandmother, former midwife, farmer and business owner who woke up one morning with the idea that it was time to start a movement in California to label GMOs. She got in her car and drove around the state, sparking what would become California’s Prop 37, The Genetic Engineered Food Labeling Act of 2012. Although it did not prevail at the ballot box, it sparked a nationwide movement for labeling GMOs. She is the Director of Labelgmos.org, is Co-Chair of the GMO Action Alliance and a member of the board for GMO Free USA. Her work for food justice and food sovereignty continues in California and beyond.
This event includes a dinner. PRE-REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED.
