Let’s Eat! Films on Food: Farmageddon

Americans’ right to access fresh, healthy foods of their choice is under attack. Farmageddon tells the story of small, family farms that were providing safe, healthy foods to their communities and were forced to stop, sometimes through violent ac-tion, by agents of misguided government bureaucracies, and seeks to figure out why.

Filmmaker Kristin Canty’s quest to find healthy food for her four children turned into an educational journey to discover why access to these foods was being threatened. What she found were policies that favor agribusiness and factory farms over small family-operated farms selling fresh foods to their communities. Instead of focusing on the source of food safety problems — most often the industrial food chain — policymakers and regulators implement and enforce solutions that target and often drive out of business small farms that have proven themselves more than capable of producing safe, healthy food, but buckle under the crushing weight of government regulations and excessive enforcement actions.

Farmageddon highlights the urgency of food freedom, encouraging farmers and consumers alike to take action to preserve individuals’ rights to access food of their choice and farmers’ rights to produce these foods safely and free from unreasona-bly burdensome regulations. The film serves to put policymakers and regulators on notice that there is a growing movement of people aware that their freedom to choose the foods they want is in danger, a movement that is taking action with its dollars and its voting power to protect and preserve the dwindling number of family farms that are struggling to survive.

$9 Members / $13 Public

Why We Love Dogs, Eat Pigs, and Wear Cows: An Introduction to Carnism

Author and Social Psychologist Dr. Melanie Joy
Why We Love Dogs, Eat Pigs, and Wear Cows:
An Introduction to Carnism
Saturday, November 12th, 2011, 10:00 a.m.
The Green Sanctuary Committee of the Unitarian Universalist Congregation at Shelter Rock invites friends and neighbors throughout Long Island to this free presentation, with a light lunch to follow.

“The national UU Ethical Eating Core Team has commended Dr. Joy’s presentation as an excellent way to engage the topic of Ethical Eating. In her captivating slide show, Dr. Joy explains carnism, the invisible belief system that shapes our perception of the meat we eat, so that we love some animals and eat others without knowing why. Using powerful imagery, thought-provoking analyses, and a compelling narrative, Dr. Joy elucidates how, although unjust ideologies (racism, sexism, ableism, carnism, etc.) all are unique, the mentality that enables such interlocking systems is strikingly similar. When unnoticed, these ideologies can cause us to act against our core values, our own interests, and the interests of others.

Melanie Joy, Ph.D. Ed.M. is a Harvard-educated psychologist and professor of psychology and sociology at the University of Massachusetts, Boston, and is the leading researcher on carnism. Dr. Joy has written articles on psychology, animal protection, and social justice. She is a longtime activist for social and environmental justice and animal welfare, explains how carnism, like other unjust ideologies, is sustained by complex, hidden social and psychological mechanisms, and it is most harmful when unrecognized. Audiences appreciate Dr. Joy’s accessible, engaging and levelheaded approach, regardless of their dietary choices.
Age guidance for this presentation: 15 to adult.”
