Join food justice and NON-GMO food advocates for dozens of workshops, presentations, and networking opportunities to examine the issues related to GMOs. Get the tools you need to support the movement and advocate for NON-GMO food! Prior to the conference, join in the GMO Awareness Week, attend movies, farm tours, and much more.
This annual conference is the largest gathering in the US focused on educating and creating awareness about the implications of GMO seeds. As an international platform to share, learn and launch campaigns in support of a GMO-FREE food supply, more than 60 speakers — from farmers, activists, and business owners to scientists and faith leaders — will examine GMO seeds’ relation to health, social justice, environment and corporate consolidation from local to global contexts.
Speaking proposals are accepted until June 30; sponsorship and volunteer opportunities are also available on the website below. To register for the conference, please visit: REGISTRATION.
