Come join us for an evening of education and empowerment and show your support for Food & Water Watch’s Healthy Farms, Healthy Families Campaign! Learn more about the issue of antibiotic resistant bacteria by watching a sneak preview of the new documentary Resistance.  There will be a short forum after the film, with several guest speakers including Dr. Robert Sprinkle of University of Maryland. RSVP by clicking here!

 

For too long, Big Ag has gotten away with prioritizing profit over public health - and the FDA and Congress have failed to act. We need our city council to be public health champions and pass a resolution urging Congress to take action and safeguard antibiotics for our families, not factory farms.

 

After the film, guest speakers at the event will address the issue of antibiotic resistant bacteria and explain what can and must be done to counter this growing threat. The panel will conclude with a question and answer period and information on how you can get involved in this important campaign.
