Facing Factory Farms Salon
Joined by TEDxManhattan 2015 speakers Michele Merkel and Kendra Kimbirauskas, we hosted our Facing Factory Farms Salon on June 16th in NYC to discuss how we can combat factory farms. Kendra and Michele showed their talks and discussed the realities behind factory farms and explored the disconnect between the "good food" movement and the farm crisis in rural America.
The salon was interactive and filled with eager audience members who shared their ideas on how we can raise awareness and take action against the factory farming issue. Read our full review of the event here to hear what Kendra, Michele and our attendees had to say. You can also view all photos here.
Even though the Change Food Library is sill in beta, it's live! It's an incredible resource to learn more about food and farming. Search by topic or speaker to find videos on a variety of subjects.
Educational kits that feature discussion questions as well as links to relevant organizations, publications, social media channels, etc, are also being develope. We are also creating a how-to guide so you can put on your own event. More info on that next month.
