Join us: Food and Ag Justice Summit
Let’s elevate a food & ag system that puts
people and planet first.
On March 7, Iowa’s self appointed political kingmaker, multi-millionaire Bruce Rastetter, will be hosting GOP presidential hopefuls like Jeb Bush, Scott Walker, and Chris Christie in Des Moines for the “2015 Iowa Ag Summit”. It will be a Corporate Ag Summit, given Rastetter’s vision of “modern agriculture” and his record of putting profits before people.
National media outlets will descend on Iowa for Rastetter’s event- we will be there in force to counter his corporatized and industrialized prescription for farming and the environment.
We are bringing in speakers from across the country to talk about a food and ag system that works for people and the planet. Anuradha Mittal of the Oakland Institute and Patty Lovera of Food and Water Watch are already committed to joining us, and we are working on getting other big names from Iowa and beyond. Please join us for a powerful day of elevating a People and Planet First Agenda that puts everyday Iowans before corporate greed.
