Ronnie Cummins: Ordinary People, Extraordinary Accomplishments

Over the past two decades, environmental activist Ronnie Cummins has served as director of US and international campaigns dealing with sustainable agriculture issues including food safety, genetic engineering, factory farming, and global warming. In this talk Cummins focuses on what individuals and small groups have done and continue to accomplish in these realms. Cummins also tells his own stories about co-founding the Organic Consumers Association (OCA) and its Mexico affiliate Via Organica. He will also discuss the obstacles to building sustainable systems and how people have overcome them in creative and personal ways.
