The Power of Local Government

The Power of Local Government-Create a GMO Free Seed Sanctuary that will share GMO Free seeds with the world!
Elise will share her experience of being a campaign manager for citizen led initiative in her county. In 2014 family farmers in southern Oregon’s Jackson County passed a local ballot measure banning genetically engineered crops from this rural and generally conservative county with a landslide victory of 66%! Voters from all political backgrounds agreed that it was time to protect family farmers from having their crops contaminated by GMOs. Bring your ideas and dreams. Let’s create a container for the change we want to see and discuss ways to make them a reality in your community.
