sign the petition for Ag Secretary now!

fooddemocracy-thumb

Hi all,

There is a petition circulating to advocate for a progressive-minded Secretary of Agriculture appointment by Obama. It has all the big names behind it–Michael Pollan, Alice Waters, Wes Jackso, Wendell Berry, Bill McKibben, etc–and is very quickly making the rounds. If you haven’t yet, please visit the site, read the message, and sign the petition. Then forward it to as many people as you know who care about this issue. It’s very important for the future of food and agriculture in our country, not to mention health, climate change, energy, and so many more issues.

Obama will be making his pick very soon, so make your voice heard before it’s too late!

When you’re done, read today’s New York Times op-ed on the same topic by columnist Nicholas Kristof.
