Food & Water Watch Volunteer Meeting in White Plains: Putting Power in Peoples' Hands
Food & Water Watch staff at Democracy Awakening in D.C., April 2016
White Plains-area residents who want to get involved in local efforts to combat climate change and stand up to corporate control and abuse of our most vital resources are invited to attend a monthly volunteer meeting of Food & Water Watch to learn about their current campaigns and ways to get involved. The next meeting is November 10 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at the Ethical Culture Society of Westchester, 7 Saxon Wood Road, White Plains.
“We champion healthy food and clean water for all and advocate for a democracy that improves people’s lives and protects our environment,” says Greta Zarro, the New York organizer for Food & Water Watch. The organization’s current projects include working to ban fracking pipelines, stop the Trans-Pacific Partnership and fight corporate giants like Monsanto. Volunteer activities include petitioning, writing letters to the editor, phone banking and helping organize rallies and film screenings to educate the community about issues that threaten people’s health and the planet.
The December meeting, which will include a holiday party and potluck, will be held December 8 at the same location.
