2020 is a battleground for the ocean. Aquabounty, a generally unknown brand in the U.S., plans to release Genetically Engineered (GE) Salmon onto the U.S market within this year. In addition, Cargill, the largest private company in the U.S., is pushing for a federal bill (the AQUAA Act) that would expand offshore aquaculture into federal waters, confine hundreds of thousands of farmed fish, and forever change our last public commons, the ocean.
Please join us to hear from Valerie Segrest and Fawn Sharp, two indigenous women who have led efforts to block GE salmon in the Northwest, and globally. This is also an opportunity to connect with participants of CAGJ’s Rise Up! Summer School as well as Uprooted and Rising organizers, when we co-present our campaigns to stop GE salmon, and uplift all of the incredible work being done around the country by Tribes to build indigenous Food Sovereignty.
Join us to hear a campaign update and learn how to take action to #BlockCorporateSalmon!
We are honored to be joined by the following leaders:
Valerie Segrest, Native American Agriculture Fund
Fawn Sharp, President of the Quinault Indian Nation in Taholah, Washington and President of National Congress of American Indians
Yasmin Ahmed, Uprooted and Rising Seattle
