Join us for a panel discussion on the documentary, "Right To Harm," which exposes the crippling impact factory farming has on public health, and how mostly rural and low-income communities suffer the most. The film features five families exposed to millions of gallons of untreated waste from neighboring Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations (CAFOs), and how they banded together to demand justice.
During our panel discussion, experts will explore the impacts of Big Ag and Big Meat on a range of social justice issues, and how by working together, we can achieve a just transition to Regenerative Agriculture.
