Vandana Shiva: The Future of Food
Don’t miss this rare Seattle visit by Vandana Shiva, world-renowned biodiversity and global-justice activist. Her “Future of Food” discussion comes as Washingtonians are preparing to vote on Initiative 522, which would require labeling of genetically engineered foods. Dr. Shiva will share her insights on world developments in genetic engineering, biodiversity, and living in tune—rather than at war—with nature.
What to expect: A full house of more than 800 people representing a vibrant cross-section of the Seattle community. A dessert reception will follow in the lobby, with live music from Mercy Crow, book signing, and locally sourced refreshments. All proceeds from this evening will benefit YES! Magazine, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit. Donations made that night will be matched and are tax-deductible.
