Apr 1: Town Hall Forum on antibiotic resistance and factory farms

Food & Water Watch will host a Town Hall Forum with speakers from the agricultural, medical, and political communities talking about the problem of antibiotics resistance due to the misuse of antibiotics on factory farms and it should be very informative!

Come out for an evening of education and empowerment and show your support for Food & Water Watch’s Healthy Farms, Healthy Families Campaign! Learn more about the issue of antibiotic resistant bacteria from guest speakers and experts!

For too long, Big Ag has gotten away with prioritizing profit over public health. We need Pittsburgh City Council to pass a resolution, calling on Senator Casey to support the Preventing Antibiotic Resistance Act (PARA), which would end the overuse of antibiotics in livestock feed, and safeguard their effectiveness in treating you and your loved ones.

Guest speakers at the Forum will address the issue of antibiotic resistant bacteria and explain what can and must be done to counter this growing threat. The panel will conclude with a Q&A period and information on how you can get involved in this important campaign.

7 p.m. at Bar Marco's community room (2216 Penn Ave., 15222.  Free and open to the public.  The Facebook event for the event is here.  For questions, please contact Margaret at margaret@fwwlocal.org or 513-886-0879
