Today we feature a conversation with Adam Mason about a strategic campaign in Iowa led by Iowa Citizens for Community Improvement (ICCI). They want a moratorium on any new and expanded hog farms where thousands of hogs are confined in very small pens. AND, if you love eating a meal with some tasty pulled pork or bacon, or frequently pick up some quick food at fast-food chains, you’ll want that campaign to succeed. Be sure to listen to this podcast. This podcast links those food choices to the factory farms which highlight deep ecological and economic problems with the global food supply system, a complex system that starts on farms and finds its way to our plates.
For clean air and water, Iowa Citizens for Community Improvement is teaming up with the Sierra Club, as well as county and city governments. This matters to anyone who eats pork or chicken or cares about the Earth. Adam Mason serves as the State Policy Organizing Director for ICCI.
