What are the risks from genetically engineered fish to the people and environments of the Pacific Northwest? We tackled this question head-on with our short film Salmon People. Now Town Hall joins forces with CAGJ to screen this powerful new film and call together a panel of indigenous and advocacy perspectives—all key activists working on Northwest Native food sovereignty and justice in the Pacific Northwest. Sit in to hear from the voices across the Pacific Northwest who are speaking out about the risks of genetically engineered fish.

Speakers:
Valerie Segrest, Muckleshoot Food Sovereignty Project
Fawn Sharp, President of the Quinault Indian Nation
George Kimbrell, Legal Director, Center for Food Safety
Alan Stay, Office of the Tribal Attorney, Muckleshoot Indian Tribe
