10/1 Got Food?
Posted by novoscene on September 30, 2008
While everyone’s going understandably apeshit over falling stocks prices, housing market implosions and bank bailouts, we’re still up in the air on many of the ways current economic hardships are going to affect the future administration and our own lives. This panel discussion sponsored by the UC Berkeley’s Journalism School and the Center for Global Metropolitan Studies will bring policy makers, academics, journalists and food justice organizers together to discuss the problems and opportunities on the horizon for our agricultural systems.
Panelists will be Michael Dimock, President of Roots of Change; Michael Pollan, Journalism Professor and author; Judith Redmond, co-owner of Full Belly Farm and President of the Community Alliance with Family Farmers; and Mark Ritchie, Minnesota Secretary of State and co-founder of the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy. UC Journalism Professor Cynthia Gorney will moderate.-Kwan
