[masked]Our next meeting comes after the primary, so our agenda changes a bit. In August, we have invited candidates to come talk to us to outline how we can help them in the upcoming elections. We will offer our services to candidates during the Sep and Oct meetings: stuffing and addressing envelopes, doing some phone banking, maybe writing postcards or ??? Or if you wish to work directly with a candidate at any time, I'm sure that can be arranged.
Preceding our candidate activity, Courtney Ryan of Repower America, will be offering a presentation that points out the radical differences between Factory Farming and Family Farming. Though it may not be readily apparent to many folks, the implications of our agricultural practices in the U.S. are having a profound impact upon our youth, our environment and our future way of life. It could be argued this environmental impact exceeds the devastation that has gone on in the Gulf, but it can't be remedied simply by sealing a leak. The use of genetic modification of crops, hormone treatment of our farm animals and the dangerous conditions under which our food is being produced are all having an economic as well as a systemic effect upon our lives. Please come learn more about this crucial issue.
We hope to see you all Wednesday August 4th, 7:00 PM, Californos, 4124 Pennsylvania Ave. Kansas City Mo. 64111.
