Following up on their popular summer series, Chewing on Food Justice, Pursue invites you to continue your learning with a discussion on the upcoming 2012 Farm Bill debates in New York City. If you have no idea what the Farm Bill is, fear not!
On January 30th, they’ll be taking on the Farm Bill, answering questions and generating discussion about what it is, why it matters, how it affects your life and the communities you care about, and what you can do to help influence it. You’ll also hear about the Jewish community’s collective effort to present a united front for a just Farm Bill and learn how you can add your voice to the campaign (starting now).
The event will feature American Jewish World Service’s very own Director of Advocacy, Timi Gerson. Timi is a force to be reckoned with and has a wealth of information to share about the upcoming Farm Bill. We’re thrilled that she’ll be joining us all the way from DC. So mark your calendars and be sure not to miss this wonderful opportunity to hear from one of the fiercest advocates on the hill.
A light meal (free!) will be served – Kosher & Yosher (Tav HaYosher-certified). This is event is brought to you by Pursue and co-sponsored by our friends at AJWS Global Circle, Food & Water Watch, Hazon and Jewish Farm School.
