Online, Jan. 27-30 — The chemical and food companies spent over $70 million on public relations campaigns to defeat grassroots efforts to label genetically engineered foods in Washington and California, and Monsanto has launched a new “charm offensive,” as Politico called it, to influence reporters and shape the narrative on GMOs. In an environment of manufactured confusion, it can be hard to know what to believe or who to trust to get the facts about the genetically engineered foods that most of us are eating every day.
Here's a chance to hear directly from reliable sources without the media filter. A superior line-up of scientists, business leaders, environmental and justice advocates will share their knowledge about GMOs in a virtual conference hosted by author Stacy Malkan, that will air online starting Jan. 27.
