His Organization “Truly Living Well” operates in-town organic farms and farmers markets and provides gardening educational classes and summer youth camps.
Dr. Abernathy has participated in Civil Rights movements since he was a child. His focus is now on championing the right of all Americans to know what is in their food and to have a choice on whether they agree to eating genetically engineered foods.
It is essential that Atlantans understand that 64 countries ban or regulate GMOs due to their health and environmental hazards, but the U.S. allows GMOs in our food and covers it up. Some states are starting to enact laws regulating GMOs, but the state of Georgia has turned a blind eye to the environmental and health problems that GMOs cause in our communities. Come learn why our government is not protecting us. Come find out which foods contain GMOS and what you can do about it. There will be a Question & Answer” session at the end of the event.
Vendor and sponsor tables will be in the atrium outside of the Morehouse Medical School auditorium.
This will be a great event for Atlanta. We look forward to seeing you there!
