In our video of the week, “Dark Waters” (see below), actor Mark Ruffalo plays a lawyer defending a farmer whose cows were poisoned by a DuPont chemical plant spewing “forever chemicals” into a community’s waterways.
At one point in the film Ruffalo says:
“The system is rigged. They want us to think it will protect us. We protect us. We do.”
Truer words were never spoken.
In a world where corporations hold all the financial power and political sway, who looks out for the people?
We do. All of us do. All of us must.
The work we are doing, together, is moving the needle toward fewer chemicals in our food. Greater transparency in our food system. A more just and regenerative food and farming system.
Sometimes the progress feels frustratingly slow. But the alternative—giving up—isn’t an option.
We depend on you to help us unrig the system. Please consider making a donation today.
