February Interfaith Environmental Conference Call: GMOs and Building Local Networks

Our February interfaith environmental conference call will be Wednesday, February 22nd at 12:00 p.m. For this call, we are excited to welcome Judith McGeary, Executive Director of the Farm and Ranch Freedom Alliance, as our guest presenter. Judith will give us some information about Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) - including what they are, some potential risks to the environment and human health, and ways Texans of faith can engage on this issue.

We will also talk about how starting a local, interfaith, environmental network in your area can build community, effectiveness, and hope. Sarah Macias will join us for this part of the call; she serves on the Steering Committee of the Interfaith Environmental Network, the Austin chapter of TXIPL. As always, we will have some time for callers to ask questions, share ideas and connect!
