ABOUT LAUREN: If you have never heard Lauren speak, you are  in for a treat!  She is a huge inspiration and founder of one of the  leading groups in the country talking about the intersections between animal rights, human rights, environmental racism, corporate players and food access. Lauren brings the issues home and creates a paradigm in which we can all be a part of the solution. It's no coincidence that her organization is called Food Empowerment Project.  

Questions and topics covered: 

  • Food is Power.
  • Is access to healthy foods a problem in the Bay Area?
  • What is the living situation for farmworkers in California? 
  • Where is my chocolate coming from? And can I trust the labels? 
  • What are the correlations between animal and human rights? 
  • What are some simple things I can do to be part of a solution?
