Come hear Anna Lappé talk about her latest book — connecting the dots between agribusiness and global warming — and host a stimulating conversation moderated by Mia MacDonald with NYC Council Member Melissa Mark-Viverito, Anim Steel of Real Food Challenge, and Angelines Moncha Alba Lamb of Slow Food USA.

On the heels of the failure of a climate bill, in the context of climate-change denial revival, how can the Farm Bill, local NYC policy, and the national "good food" movement help us build a food system that can help ensure everyone has access to healthy food and cool the planet in a climate unstable future?
