Watch the #BlockCorporateSalmon Webinar: Standing with Northwest Tribes for Food Sovereignty

On September 23, 2020 we had the privilege of hearing from Valerie Segrest and Fawn Sharp, two indigenous women who are leading efforts to block genetically engineered salmon in the Northwest, and globally. Yasmin Ahmed, an organizer with Uprooted and Rising (UNR), situated the struggle against GE salmon within the broader context of problems with industrial aquaculture, corporate control, and the power of universities.  CAGJ’s Rise Up! Summer School and UNR organizers co-presented our campaigns to stop GE salmon, and to uplift all of the incredible work being done around the country by Tribes to build indigenous Food Sovereignty.

Please share the recording of the webinar and encourage family and friends to oppose GE Salmon!
