Healthy Farms Forum - Providence

 

two cows.jpgThis spring, Providence became one of the first cities in the country to pass a resolution calling for a ban on factory farm abuse of antibiotics! This was an important  first step, but we need federal action in order to address this critical public health issue.

Join a special public forum on the need for federal action to ban the overuse of antibiotic abuse on factory farms. We'll be joined by experts on the issue and a representative from the office of Senator Whitehouse.
