Democracy Convention

Democracy is coming... to the U.S.A.

Join Lex Horan, John Peck, and Amy Mondloch in this exploration of the many ways rural Midwesterners are taking on big ag.  Learn the story of Toxic Taters, a group of rural Minnesotans taking on RD Offutt, the largest potato producer in the United States and McDonald's through a multifaceted approach addressing the health, environmental, economic, racial, and cultural issues facing our communities. Build your understanding of rural organizing across racial divides, working with communities impacted by pesticides, and how the pesticides being sprayed over a home in northern Minnesota right now are affecting you and what you can do about it.
