Guest Speaker Hilal Elver: How Our Food Systems Create Hunger

Monday, October 22, 2018
12:00pm to 1:00pm

Agricultural workers play a critical role in achieving food security and fulfilling the universal human right to adequate food. They are, however, among the most food insecure, facing formidable barriers to the realization of their right to food, often working without labor and employment protections and under dangerous conditions.

Join Hilal Elver, United Nations Special Rapporteur on the Right to Food, for "The Unseen Paradox of Agricultural Workers: How Our Food Systems Create Hunger" where she will discuss the rights of agricultural workers on a global scale and her recent report to the United Nations on the matter.

All are welcome and pizza will be served.
