Salmon People
Northwest Native Opposition to Genetically Engineered Fish
Tuesday, April 9, 2019, 7:00PM
Langston Hughes Performing Arts Institute (Central District)

What are the risks from genetically engineered fish to the people and environments of the Pacific Northwest? New Canoe Media tackles this question head-on with their new 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 security 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 include:

Valerie Segrest, Muckleshoot Food Sovereignty Project

Alan Stay, Office of the Tribal Attorney, Muckleshoot Indian Tribe

Fawn Sharp, President of the Quinault Indian Nation

Dana Perls, Senior Food and Technology Policy Campaigner with Friends of the Earth
