We would like to extend an invitation to join us for the fourth year of our annual gathering. Attending this conference will allow you to interact with some of the most important non-GMO advocates. We will have colleagues working on various issues related to promoting a non-GMO food supply.

Our conference participants will include a wide range of people and organizations including environmental groups, health professionals, scientists, farmers, funders, activists, advocacy groups, faith leaders, students, parents, and elected officials.

The 2014 Justice Begins with Seeds Conference will have plenaries and workshops that will explore an array of issues related to GMOs. Our goal is to have a diverse audience from various backgrounds and organizations join together to strategize around important issues related to reclaiming our food system. We want to include groups working on non-GMO campaigns at both the local and global level, including political campaigns. Topics range from labeling to banning GMOs as well as shareholder and consumer campaigns to stop the use of GMOs in our food supply. We are expecting over 700 attendees during the gathering and hundreds more during the pre-conference and post-conference events.

Andrew Kimbrell - Center for Food SafetyWe are honored to announce that Andrew Kimbrell, Founder and Executive Director of Center for Food Safety, will join us as the keynote speaker at this year’s Justice Begins with Seeds Conference.

Andrew Kimbrell is one of the most important leaders in the non-GE food movement and has been at the forefront since the beginning. With his strong leadership he has been incredibly strategic and tactful in fighting the industrial food model and biotech chemical companies while actively promoting an alternative, sustainable food system. Please see an excerpt from the latest debate at the Commonwealth Club in San Francisco.  Andrew Kimbrell presents clear, convincing, articulate arguments against the myths surrounding GE technology.
