I am so excited to invite you to the 2016 International Food Justice Summit that will be in Hilo, Hawai`i THIS FRIDAY! HAPA has partnered with the Pesticide Action Network (PAN) North America to host, "Challenging the Global Impacts of the Agrochemical Industry: An International Food Justice Summit," January 15-20, 2016, in locations throughout Hawai`i.
Advocates from around the world and Hawai`i will travel across the islands to weave together a story of how our local struggles for protections from pesticides and to limit corporate influence on government are connected -- and to explore how we can grow (together) towards restoring a fairer and more sustainable food system.
The event in Hilo is this Friday, January 15th, from 6PM - 8PM at the University of Hawai`i, Hilo (in University Classroom Building (UCB) 100). This is a FREE event, and HAPA is giving away free T-shirts to the first 20 people to arrive and sign-in. (Seating is unreserved, no tickets are needed.)
You can learn more and RSVP on the Facebook event page. Please join me to hear these inspiring local and global advocates. I hope to see you there!
President, Hawai`i Alliance for Progressive Action
