Building Bridges to Fix Our Food System

October 28, 2013 - 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm (already occurred)

Our food system is broken. Industrialized agriculture destroys local economies, puts family farmers off the land, threatens public health and torments the animals caught inside this unsustainable cycle.

You are invited to two engaging talks with Joe Maxwell, vice president for outreach and engagement at the Humane Society of the United States. Maxwell grew up on a family farm in the small town of Rush Hill, Mo., the son of a hardworking family farmer. He also served as lieutenant governor of Missouri. Today, Maxwell works directly with family farmers who use best animal welfare practices to help them organize and educate others about better animal welfare practices.
