This workshop explores the national struggle that has broken out over whether we have the right to access the foods of our choice, directly from farmers. David Gumpert will take the audience through some of the major enforcement actions that have taken place against farmers around the country. He argues that the struggle challenges progressive preconceptions about such issues as food safety, public health and illness. He will also provide guidance for how people can become involved in fighting for food rights.
