Monsanto wins landmark case in Supreme Court
Static Preview

The United States Supreme Court ruled Monday (May 2013) in favor of biotech giant Monsanto, closing the door on a patent case that has pitted a smalltime farmer from Indiana against a titan of the agriculture industry.

The high court said early Monday that 75-year-old farmer Vernon Bowman of Indiana violated Monsanto’s patent rights when he purchased a mix of seeds from a grain elevator that he later planted on his Midwest farm. This is his story in his own words from February, 2013 interview covered in the Huffington Post.

Recognizing the Power of Your Choices by Brittany Stallworth
Static Preview

Growing up in Detroit, Brittany Stallworth, Brower Youth Award Winner 2012, and members of her family suffered from limited access to healthy food and exposure to toxic emissions from nearby car factories. Driven by her own experience with environmental injustice, Stallworth founded "Green is the New Black" — a food and environmental justice campaign at Howard University. As part of the campaign, Stallworth organized on-campus workshops for students led by experts in food, health, and environmental issues. She also helped organize a symposium attended by more than 35 green organizations that offered internship and job opportunities to the college students. The passion Stallworth brings to this cause has inspired others to take action in improving food accessibility and environmental justice in underprivileged communities

Food Justice by Maya Salsedo
Static Preview

Maya Salsedo - Brower Youth Award Winner 2012 - For Salsedo, the personal is political. Salsedo is the descendent of emmigrants from Puerto Rico who found their way to Hawaii in order to work in sugar cane fields. Her family has always had trouble accessing healthy food. That experience with food insecurity spurred Salsedo to dedicate herself to advancing food justice. In 2011 — while working as a youth organizer with the Earth Island Institute-sponsored project Rooted in Community — she proposed creating a Youth Food Bill of Rights. The declaration grew out of Salsedo's vision for a food system that is good for consumers, producers, and the planet and which gives local communities more control over the food they eat. Salsedo has since motivated her peers to spread the word about the Youth Food Bill across the nation. Her work has provided the foundation for dialogues about what food justice means to today's youth.
