Playing tracks by
Brooklyn Food Conference 2012.
This session will be a follow-up to the workshops o“Free Trade vs. Safe, Just, and Sustainable Food” and “Globalizing Agribusiness: Free Trade, Factory Farms, and Genetically Modified Food” (while also being relevant to those who do not attend that workshop). After learning about how “free” trade threatens the food system, this workshop will:
-provide attendees with information about the latest trade deals coming down the pipeline (in particular, the Transpacific Partnership, which is currently under negotiation by the US and 8 other countries);
-share success stories and lessons learned from past organizing efforts; and
-engage attendees in a participatory strategizing and planning session on how to educate our communities on these issues in a way that speaks to them and how to get the food movement as a whole more engaged in the fight against destructive trade deals.
