Join internationally renowned food activist and author Dr. Vandana Shiva for a special lecture sponsored by the Center for Agriculture and Food Systems at Vermont Law School in support of the Vermont Right to Know Coalition. Her talk will focus on Food System Transformation and Reversing Climate Crisis: Vermont's GMO labeling law part of the solution.

Dr. Shiva is the author of "the Violence of the Green Revolution," "Monocultures of the Mind," "Stolen Harvest," and "Water Wars." Her farm Navdanya in India is a mecca for biodiverse, sustainable agriculture, and she joins us in Vermont to support the work of the VT Right to Know Coalition. This spring the coalition achieved a milestone with the passage of the country's first mandatory GMO labeling law, for which the Environmental and Natural Resources Law Clinic at VLS provided critical legal support. ​
