What we do

Educate for Action2014-06-28 11.09.56

Community-based workshops and "teach-outs" educating people on food justice & sovereignty issues and encouraging people to take action.

"Our Food, Our Right: Recipes for Food Justice" is CAGJ's educational book in two editions, with recipes, how-to, and essays on food politics, justice, and sovereignty. A great teaching resource!

TUES Jan 15: What is a Gene Drive? Food Justice Project Discussion

TUES Jan 15, 2019 6:30 – 8:30PM

You are Invited to a Food Justice Project Discussion!

What are Gene Drives?

Controversy erupted on the international stage at the recent UN Meetings on Biological Diversity, where civil society groups including CAGJ called for a global moratorium on any release of engineered gene drives, citing the need to apply the precautionary principle. But what are gene drives, and how could they affect our food and farming systems? And what is their connection to GE mosquitoes, soon to be released in Burkina Faso?

We will gather to lo try to answer these questions together with members of CAGJ’s AGRA Watch program. Participants are encouraged to read the following pieces to have some background, but all are welcome, regardless of your knowledge of this topic!

If you wish to delve deeper into the topic, please see resources below.
