World Social Forum: an act of International Solidarity

Buenos Aires, Argentina-- From January 26th-30th, Sarita and I will represent Organic Volunteers at this year´s World Social Forum. We will be among hundreds of organizations and individuals from the US who are attending to show the world the social movement in the US is still strong. In a time when many have lost hope in the US this forum will be an important act of solidarity. We are especially excited to be representing the organic and sustainable agriculture movement in the US. The role of agriculture subsidies in globalization and postive solutions like organic farming will be central to the conference.
