GMO, OMG! FILM SCREENING AND DISCUSSION
Don’t miss this engaging documentary about the health and environmental effects of genetically engineered foods, also known as GMOs.
GMO OMG director and concerned father Jeremy Seifert is in search of answers. How do GMOs affect our children, the health of our planet, and our freedom of choice? And perhaps the ultimate question, which Seifert tests himself: is it even possible to reject the food system currently in place, or have we lost something we can’t gain back? These and other questions take Seifert on a journey from his family’s table to Haiti, Paris, Norway, and the lobby of agra-giant Monsanto, from which he is unceremoniously ejected. Along the way we gain insight into a question that is of growing concern to citizens the world over: what’s on your plate?
Following the film, speakers from GMO Free NJ will lead a discussion on the issues surrounding GMOs, answer questions and provide an update on the effort to enact a GMO labeling law in NJ. There will be a door prize, so wear your lucky socks!
Free and open to the public
