MICHELE MERKEL: Whether it’s hunger, junk food marketing to kids, [or] antibiotic-resistant bacteria, it doesn’t matter. They all stem from an imbalance of power between corporate interests and people.

[00:13]
To change this imbalance, we need to do the long-term and difficult work of building political power to make meaningful changes in people’s lives.

[00:21]
Choose democracy and choose action. We invite you to this fight, to reclaim our food system and to make government work for the people.

[00:34]
WENONAH HAUTER: We must work towards a bold vision, one rooted in justice and equity.

[00:45] A society where all people have clean water, healthy food, a good union job and a livable climate.
