Fresh from the front line of the successful farmer led ban on GMOs in two rural counties of Oregon, Magaleno Rose-Avila* will be a featured speaker at a community discussion. Through a lifetime of service to United Farm Workers Union, Peace Corp, Amnesty Int and Cesar E Chavez Foundation, "Leno" has seen the power of organizing and will share his story.
