Food Democrary Now

In these final days before President Elect Obama makes his selection for Secretary of Agriculture, we urge you to help us spread the word about a petition we can sign to express our support for dynamic and sustainable choices for the post.

Erika Lesser, Slow Food USA Director, and I are on the list of original signers as are several SFUSA board members and leaders around the country. You can find the petition here: http://www.fooddemocracynow.org/. Even if the new administration doesn’t pick one of the listed candidates, signing the petition sends a strong message that we want a good, clean, and fair food system and that we expect our new administration to make choices that support that vision.

We don’t have much time left to get as many signatures as possible, so we hope you’ll take initiative by:

1. forwarding this note to your friends and colleagues, or
2. mentioning it in person at any events in which you're participating in the next 4 days or so.

Check out the SFUSA blog for more info: http://www.slowfoodusa.org/index.php/slow_food/blog_post/take_action_obama_is_waiting_to_hear_from_you/),
Thank you for helping slow values get represented in the White House in the coming administration.
